Well, mainly some surounding of the information, some number formatting,
etc... as you have a great number of possible combinations, that would
really make things grow endlessly.

In fact I think that the simplest/safest way would be if the printer
would be some string, that SES would interprete to build the
function. The thing is that I need to extend the format %d %f and on on
to cover Calc objects. This is something which I had already being
thinking about for some time, but I have not yet dared go into it.

That would not really make it safer because any hacker could find the
`somewhere in the file' and put some malicious definition there.

My concern was more about getting the system stuck, but you still have
the C-g
