I believe you on the comma-seperated list in brackets not working, but
  S(:).FIELD = scalar
sure does when S already has the member FIELD.  I don't know the
implementation, but it certainly does do the job.  I think what we're 
discussing is that it doesn't give the same results when FIELD is new
(i.e., not already in S).
