Ok. Thank you.

Sorry to ask, but is there a reason why it is not implemented? From my
(newbie) point of vue, there is no difference between hard coded node
types (for which node.id is provided) and hard coded node subtypes?
So, what about a node.subtypeid?

local GLUE = node.id('glue')
local XLEADERS = node.subtypeid('glue','xleaders')
local points = node.new(GLUE, XLEADERS)

Thanks and sorry again if I missed something.

Best regards
