Well Paul, you know where the code is ... have at it, my friend!

In all seriousness ... yes, I'd like that as well.  But I'm limited
in time and energy.  If we add one function to the components that
makes this workable for me, then I'm happy.  This is what Lyndon &
I were talking about earlier in terms of an embedded scripting
language available for use in the components file.  Adding one
format function, I can do now.  Figuring out a more general solution ...
well, that's complicated, because that will involve some significant
design work to make it useful enough.  I'm not afraid of complicated,
but I realize that for ME, "complicated" means, "probably won't get
done for a year or two, if I'm lucky".  But please, if you or anyone
else wants to tackle this work don't let me stand in your way.
