I was afraid I'd touch things actually possible already...

%6 = (911*x^11 - 250734*x^9 + 29604960*x^7 - 1665195840*x^5 + 39178339200*x^3 - 250637587200*x)/(-8981280*x^4 - 2594592000*x^2 - 250637587200)

Good!

Won't work with fractions of polynomials
(as other things I suggested, there are workarounds;
I only made such suggestions when I thought it would
lead to more expressive Pari code).

Second arg determines length of vector, not initial index.

I'd like to be able to have
? Vec(x^3/(1-x)+O(x^6))
\\ give
%4 = [0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1]
\\ and not
%4 = [1, 1, 1]

My usual workaround is
v = Vec(x^3/(1-x)+O(x^6) +'c0);
v[1] -= 'c0;
v
... but that's at least a bit noisy.
