Thanks you, Eric, for providing this new functionality.

I am only reading the thread now; my apology for coming late to the "party".

I think the template expansion a la "<s" is brilliant.  I used to have
YASnippet installed for many years, and I never figured out how to use it
properly.  To me, it is a bit too complex a replacement.

I wonder if skeleton.el or abbrev could be used?  Perhaps it is sufficient
(for me) to bind the new function to "<".


PS: Thanks for remembering and advocating my distaste for the FORTRAN-ORG
