Good point; it does.

The new parser, when I have a chance to write it, should make inncheck
much easier (and avoid having to put into inncheck a full list of
parameters that duplicates the lists elsewhere).  I'm going to be mostly
away from the computer over Memorial Day weekend (this weekend in the US)
for Baycon and then hope to start writing code again.
