An interesting addition to the lore ;-)

I was intrigued by your description of ':-', because I came up with a very 
different pattern which (as far as I can tell) is consistent with what cwm 

I use this:
irep:GenReport a rep:Report ; :-
   ( [ rep:cmd rep:if ; rep:defined "htmlname" ; rep:do irep:HTMLReport ] ) .

To create a list whose first element is the node labelled irep:GenReport in 
this example.  I can't tell if this is consistent with the description you 
give, or if I've stumbled across an inconsistency in the way ':-' is 
treated.  I did conduct a number of tests with cwm, which seems to do the 
same thing with this case.

It seems my parser doesn't like Dan's examples, either, like the one 
below.  Ho hum.
