I thought about this, but I was thinking there was some Yacc issue with 
putting extra stuff in the header.  Something Akim said when we were 
discussing the pre-prologues in the header a while back.  Oh well, I can't 
find it now.

Not for me.  I guess it's been around long enough with no complaints that 
I shouldn't have worried about it.  I'll just leave it.

you'll implement this eventually?
