First draft done, and posted.

It does now anyway.

It did not. This one does what I intended (not that it is very useful):


That is, I had to decrement p by 2. That was a bit unintuitive to me but 
I'm sure there are clever thoughts behind it (it use to be).

BTW, I 'had' to add support for entering characters like \xDF in order 
for this to be really useful. We discussed this feature for rules too, 
long ago. IIRC the syntax for rules would have to be something else?
