Thanks, Peter. This is interesting, and I think I'll use this
for something or other.

But in this case, it doesn't really address the main question,
which is that fishing this variable out of the haze in which
it's currently in in the config file is a PITA.

Thinking about it since I sent the original message, though, I
think I will put them into variables that I will interpolate.
