Per discussion on IRC:

I think it would be a good idea if the recset and recins commands could
accept some kind of "value expression" in their -s, -a and -v options.
That is to say, whereas currently only literal strings can be given (eg:
recset -f FEX -v "value") it would be nice to allow one to have
recset -f FEX -v VEX

For example one might wish to add a new string field which is based upon 
another (existing) field: recset -f "field-new" -a "[field-existing]s/foo/bar"

Or in the case of numeric fields: recset -f "field-new" -a "[field-existing] + 

Just a suggestion for you to think about ...
