Question: Taylor series expansion for vector fields

Hello,

I wanted to ask whether it's possible to use the taylor command together with vectors from the physics package, maybe I am just doing something wrong here. I tried the following:

and get an error message that diff cannot handle vectors. Of course I could do the expansion by hand an enter the result in Maple but I think it would be a very nice feature because an expansion of vector fields which vary in space and time is such a common problem e.g. in classical electrodynamics. I think of an expansion with non-projected vectors such as

+ higher order terms.

Thanks a lot!
