Re: Column labels with --full

Hi Dima,

Hmm. I haven't really used the --full flag before.

The example in the manual only shows it being used when the operation can be 
applied to one record at a time. Furthermore, the wording of the manual entry 
makes it unclear what the expected behavior should be when the operation does 
some form of aggregation (eg groubpy, sum, mean).

It might be reasonable to add a caveat "Only use this for record-wise 
operations" to the manual? And for other operations, perhaps we could add a check 
which warns on stderr when --full is not being used as expected.

That's my initial thoughts. Any other ideas about what should be changed here?
