It's a bit more complicated than that, though maybe doable.


- we spot on the way down this is a multsub when we reached the nested
paramsubst() (we could do that with a pf_flags bit)

- we return a name of a parameter and a flag saying what we're doing on
noticing this

- we pass this up to the to paramsubst() regardless of what else is going
on in the prefork() and the multsub() --- this is the bit I a little scared
of, but (P) is so explicit in what it's doing maybe that's OK

- in the upper paramsubst we use the flag to retrieve a Value based on
the return, i.e. it now really is just a name for use up above as you
might have been entitled to think it always was --- this is surely doable
but I bet it's messier than you'd expect

does that do it?
