No.  I just threw that in to see if anyone was awake.

: And what about X? It'd let you write the same thing without the join:
: 
:     goto("L" ~ { rand 10 } X rand 10)

But that doesn't mean I've ruled it out yet either.  But it seems
like there should be a way to get the same effect with x and xx with
some option or context sensetivity.  I just haven't thought about
enough yet.
