Right, but that's because %(myname) is always the same for your
entries.  It doesn't have to be, that's my point.

Oh, hm.  I see what you mean now.  Things like %(addr) and %(proper) only
take a component name.  Fixing this might be tricky.  Changing the address
functions to take any string would be tough.  Maybe have a function that
converts "str" to a named component?  That seems not so great either.  I
guess absent a better solution what you've chosen is probably the best
we can do.
