Hello Axel,

> could you give me an example of a non-commutative aggregate?

The example is any report generator, such as traditional XMLAGG
aggregate that makes an XML tree from its descendants.

That's absolutely required for statistical calculations of all sorts,
from regression to likelihood detection.
