Right: Imagine you want to plot a field which is 100 samples per frame vs 
something that is 1 samples per frame.  And you want to plot one frame.  Maybe 
because your datasource is only one frame long.  What should you do?

There is clearly no general solution to this problem.

INDEX is nothing special: it is something provided by some data sources.  It 
would be just the same if we were talking about any field sampled once per 
frame; say.... "Time".  So all vectors from a data source would need to do 
this.  But then we would need to know to ignore the last extrapolated sample 
for everything other than interpolating.

Formally, Index goes from 0 to 10 - (1/sample rate), but it needs to be an

It is a tricky problem to get right everywhere, but I will mull upon it 
further (and not close the bug...)
