        It would be nice to be able to put multiple substitution
        expressions into a single expansion.  This may be impossible,
        but then I won't know if I don't ask.

        It seems syntatically logical to be able to use extra { and }
        to allow a variable expansion to be parsed multiply.  This
        could quickly get confusing, though.  Anyway, say I want to
        chop both the path and the extension off a filename:


        It seems logical to be able to use


        rather than resorting to intermediate variables:


        This is primarily valuable when used in a for expression,
        where you currently only get one expansion on the iteration
