Much appreciated!

Most immediate use is for accessing polygon path tables like this: https://github.com/clothbot/makerbot/blob/master/fabjects/libraries/constructors/fonts.scad

I managed to get a "font_char_index" recursive lookup function working in https://github.com/clothbot/makerbot/blob/master/fabjects/libraries/constructors/text.scad but it was horribly slow.
