Wow!  Cool!  Just one problem, and that's that something like:

#2 = 6;

generates a `Parse error in scatter argument list.', when it should be 
something like `Illegal expression on left side of assignment.', since #2 
isn't a list.

Oh, anyone attempting to apply this patch should `make scrub' before 
recompiling.  It will save you lots of grief. :)
