in reply to Math::Vector - request for comments

One thing that I would consider, but that would require a bit of a rewrite, is to keep "Math::Vector" general to n dimensions, and create "Math::Vector::3D" for the specific 3-dimensional extentions that you have (eg x(), y(), z()). You'd have to add some size checks on the operations that take two vectors, of course.

    Thanks for the input. =)

    I considered that when rewriting bits of this. The main reason it isn't implemented is because personally I had only needed 3d vectors (physics fun =).

    I think I will definitely consider this before making it more widely available.
