(Just in case anyone misunderstood, that was just in reference to her wording
 "identifiers only (or, at most, IDENT, NUMBER, and DIMEN)", it's not that she
 and I have discussed the issue.
 
 Btw, I suspect that the REAL reason I'm uncomfortable with allowing them is
 just that I don't want to add extra state to every NUMBER and DIMENSION token
 in the system just for this one rare use.  Call me a geek for caring.)
