I don't think we chose a name before; I picked 'member' as an obviousish
one. It reads in the (oft-ignored) prefered style of M&S, ie.

definition would be good though. Anyone want to have a crack at that?

Last time around it was all done in MS Word98, but I don't currently have
a windows box handy...
