I never even knew this was a possibility.  I've always put the
filename last.  I'm definitely in favor of limiting it this way.
Hopefully nobody has created a script that depends on this level
of flexibility.  B-)  (It's highly likely that anyone using a
custom postproc wrote it.  Is there some way to warn such users
and prevent post(8) from completing, so that they can update
their postproc without losing their draft or the draft being
incorrectly post(8)-ed?)
