Actually, the limit is per function. So you could do something like this:

f=function (T)
    -- populate some entries of T

f=function (T)
    -- populate some some entries of T

This and the CSV format are reasonable suggestions. I'll probably do it this way, just so I don't have to write something to transform the CSV format.

BTW, in case anyone is wondering why I'm doing this, its to get the key information out so I can then use it later to fetch data from a "cold" database that doesn't already have the data in cache (its own or the operating systems) so I can get some pessimistic timing data.

Thanks to Jermoe and Luiz for pointing out the problem and solution.

As a final follow up, I implemented the technique Luiz proposed and it works like a charm. Thanks again.
