Hello! I was planning to ask a question about FunctionCompile, but then I got second thoughts because it is still marked as [EXPERIMENTAL]. Is it better to hold back on asking questions about it because maybe even good questions and good answers might become obsolete?

@Kiro experimental means it is still being actively worked on, but is stable enough to be useful. So, depending on the function, think late alpha to late beta. That said, there are many questions that have been asked about Internal functions where there are no guarantees for users, not even stability. So, if you have questions, ask them. Worst case, the answers become obsolete. The best case, the function is improved because of your question.

Q: Why `CenterDot[var_] := var` with `Flat` attribute induces infinite recursion?

Chong WangI am trying to define some rules for CenterDot. One thing I don't understand is that if I define SetAttributes[CenterDot, Flat] CenterDot[var_] := var CenterDot[x] will induce infinite recursion. I have tried to use Trace, but could not find why there was a recursion. I am expecting CenterDot[x]...
