jit.pack planecount

    what does the planecount message to jit.pack actually do ?
    I was hoping to use it to limit the number of planes of my matrix to
    the ones i really use..
    for instance I want to pack some planes together, maximum eight, so I
    use a [jit.pack 8].
    but once in a while I want only six, so I send [planecount 6] to my
    jit.pack, which I expected to result in jit.pack ignoring the last two
    inputs ?
    but the planecount message doesn't seem to make any difference.
    what am I missing ?

      Unfortunately this is not dynamic in jit.pack. I might suggest using
      scripting, or jit.pack from js/java, or possibly jit.expr or exprfill
      method for jit.matrix (e.g. planecount 6, exprfill "mat0.p[0]" "mat1.p
      [0]" "mat2.p[0]" "mat3.p[0]" "mat4.p[0]" "mat5.p[0]")
