(administrivia: i've requested that john ramsdell be added to this
mailing list because i'm tired of adding cc: lines; i'll let everyone
know when the update happens.)

gaaaaaaaaah, yuck.
i'm really not liking that.
this sorta makes me reconsider the behavior about accepting messages
with duplicate keywords.  worse still, we've got:

#$#say 123345 what*: "" what: "Hats off" _data-tag abc
#$#* abc what: Hats on
#$#END abc

which means you've got to be careful to throw away those additional
lines.  yuck yuck yuck yuck yuck.  i dunno.  is there widespread
insistence that this should be legal?
