I was vaguely remembering that -tabm- was based on a temporary
-reshape-, but that is not right; the restructuring is done by
-stack-.

When -tabm- was first written (1998) -stack- was a bigger deal than it
seems now, and -reshape- (if it existed) a lesser deal.

No matter: the key point is just that some of these tabulation
problems are easy once you restructure the data.
