No, that's exactly my point. But as Bart just explained, since newlines are syntactic in interactive mode (how could it really be otherwise?) They must be syntactic in scripts, and that is the heart of the matter. It looks like what I've been 'asking for' is just to permit a sloppy parse of lines beginning with '&&'--a default value--but who really
needs that? Better to be explicit.  I repent of it.

out of me is turning out to be 10x harder than I expected.
Anyway, it's too much noise on the list.
