is not.

This is a rather rediculous limitation.  This parser just ISN'T ready 
for prime-time folks.  I'm going back to 2.n until this stuff is 
cleared up.  I woudl be happy to write a proper and correct parser 
for the language if people want me to, but the context sensativity of 
the current one is rediculous.

(No offense to whomever did it.  The problem is probobly that an 
attempt was made to mdify the old one, which was really written for a 
line-oriented scriting language, rather then starting from scratch
