Curiosity?  Being sure that my code works as expected, or, IOW,
understanding it? ;-)

And inspecting the code didn't help me a lot - that was the second thing
I tried (the first being checking the docs), but I didn't understand
it.  It seems there's a case dispatch, but I didn't see the branch
responsible for symbols.

Thanks anyway,
