Yep. I agree.

I haven't exhaustively checked everything, but I had in mind things like:

g_mdmat  (simple distance matrices, or with -frames a 3D field)
g_rms    (RMSD matrix)
g_enemat (energy matrix, maybe also field as f(time)?)
g_covar  (covariance matrix)
do_dssp  (matrix of ss as f(t))

Also, matrix data is not the only data I am interested in. Basically anything 
that is 2D or higher, like field/density data.

I am currently playing around with the netcdf format and opendx to get a 
clearer picture of what I want in the end.
