} Er, how should _values do that?  At the time the `foo' is added as a
} match _values isn't running anymore.

Er, um ... I was confusing the problem above with THIS problem:

} (But it was broken for the (...)-forms of actions, too.  Ahem.)

So I really wasn't thinking of the -> case at all, so ...

} We could make _values store the `-qS$sep' in some array that has to be
} declared by the calling function, but then that function has to use it
} and probably could equally well do it directly.


} Should we add that or just document what the function handling the
} `->state' would have to do?

Documenting what the ->state handler should do would be nice, yes.
