Oh, then I was misinterpreting you all along. There's nothing special
about the first value that init receives -- it's just the first value
in the stream coming from the PField object. So if that object was
created by a call to maketable, it will be the first element in the
table. For a PField created by a call to makeconnection, it will
probably be the value specified as a default in the makeconnection
call, unless the source has already begun to generate valid data
by the time init is called.
