I actually thought about 4- and n-dimensional tables before, but I
didn't expect anyone would need it and it'd scare away novice users.
However, it's not hard to implement at all :)
So this changes my todo list for the next (unstable) release to:
- title for pages
- n-dimensional tables
(I want to get the other patches/fixes in a bugfix (stable) release)

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean with ``skipped axis''. One
interpretation that'd make sense would be:
Since you can only draw 1-d and 2-d tables in HTML you have to display
n-dimensional tables as (n/2) two-dimensional tables and (if applicable)
one one-dimensional table.
With a ``skipped axis'' (.. BY foo,,bar) yaala would draw two
In your example above (BY foo,,,bar) the first table would be vertical,
the second one (displaying bar) would be horizontal..
Is that what you mean?
> I can easily implement 4D or ever ND tables,
I'd highly appreciate a patch for this, since my time right now is
_very_ limited :(
Since this is all layout-stuff the neccessary files should be in
lib/Yaala/Reports, most likely in ``Combined.pm''..
Also, could you enlighten me, what exactly your patch for
``classic_skip_empty'' does? It didn't make much sense to me this
