I'm the last person to have the right to make any claims about how to do UI 
but, that said, here I go.  Currently, all style-related properties are symbols 
(Flag #'style, etc.).  Insofar as this is a context modification, I realize 
that the syntax has to be different, but it may be strange to users to remember 
this one exception.

Unfortunately, I can't think of a good workaround, but I figured I'd raise that
