ooo that makes sense.  like it.

Cat however still needs alteration: it can't cope with the
fact that the input(s) and output are fundamentally tied

take e.g. a b and c to be Cat()ed together.  b creates holes
right in the middle of the result's PartitionPoints, that
critically depend on the size of a and c.  only PartitionedCat
itself can determine where to copy the bits of b into the

bottom line is, SimdSignal.cast should work fine for one-to-one,
but not for many-to-one.  hopefully Cat() is just the weird
one here.
