Can the `Calculate` node be changed to allow for integer arithmetic? I know the automatic type converters kick in when it's hooked up to nodes that take `Integers`, but being able to set the type of the `Calculate` to `Integer` node would cause less clutter, less time selecting how to round the result, and less processing time in a loop.

Additionally, can it be changed to also allow `2`/`3`/`4D Points`? In the event that a `3D Point` is being used in a calculation, and the result is another `3D Point`, right now three `Calculate` nodes need to be used, one per dimension. A point could be constructed within an expression using `[these]` brackets. A number could be used in an expression without any change, but perhaps a `2D Point` could be written with `_XY` as a suffix, a `3D Point` with `_XYZ`, etc. A dimension could be used from a point with just that dimension (instead of all dimensions) specified in the suffix.

The node could either take a single expression to calculate all dimensions in the point, or it could take an expression per dimension. Allowing for a bit of vector-style arithmetic could further open up some flexibility too, for example, by allowing adding two points, multiplying a point by a constant, multiplying dimensions (as in `X1*X2`, `Y1*Y2`, etc.), dot/cross products, a magnitude function (perhaps with `|this|` syntax...

Expressions might look like this:

``````radius * [cos(theta), sin(theta)] //Point on a circle at angle theta
deltaTime * velocity_XY + location_XY //New location after applying velocity
[velocity_X, deltaTime * gravity + velocity_Y] //New velocity after applying gravity
``````
