This is already done. Making the distance algorithm dimension-agnostic
is the first thing I did with Barend after the preview 2, when I
joined the project. And the iteration between dimensions is obviously
made at compile-time.

Looks like we *really* have to show the preview 3 as soon as possible :-)
