Until this discussion came up, I wasn't aware of the range type...

*** local user variables:

prot  type               rows   cols  name
====  ====               ====   ====  ====
 wd   range                 1     10  x
 wd   matrix                1     10  y
 wd   matrix                1     10  z

I think it makes sense to at least warn users in "help save" about the way
that ranges can get messed up in default saves.
