Just for the records - for environments in flash the "md" command is
of course your friend to see what special characters crept into the
variable names.  Other environment storage locations are left to the
reader as an excercise.  Note that this is only possible because the
environment is saved in such an "unefficient way".


`What's new?' is an interesting and broadening eternal question, but
one which, if pursued exclusively, results only in an endless parade
of trivia and fashion, the silt of tomorrow.
