I mean I don't know how to test them. But if it's only necessary to
compile pd, maybe that's already written somewhere? Or is there a "how to
test new changes" page?

I would say the one with the array (and not [plot]). But I'm a surface
user, I don't know what's happening inside.
A con for the template struct: if this template is used also for
individual scalars (which doesn't happen often anyway), it might get
messy. So maybe better think of high level.
