It seems to me that it would be very useful to be able to mention an iterator more then once in a statement. For instace, I'd like to be able do each of the following:

control:
     lista = ( file1:file2:file3:file4 )
     listb = ( filea:fileb:filec:filed )

copy:
     $(mf)${lista}
          dest=${lista}
          mode=644
          owner=root
          group=root
          type=checksum
          server=$(policyhost)

     $(mf)${listb}.${host}
          dest=${listb}
          mode=644
          owner=root
          group=root
          type=checksum
          server=$(policyhost)


Is there a trick to make this work? Something like assigning the iterator to another variable and using it in the statement?

This sure would reduce the complexity of my config files.

Right now there's a stanze for each of file1-file4, and filea-filed.

Thanks,

John
