Thanks, Chipp, but my warchest has a more compact, but just as 
efficient version of CancelPending:

on CancelPending pMsg
  put the pendingMessages into tPending
  if (pMsg <> "") and (pMsg <> "all") then filter tPending with "*," & 
pMsg & ",*"
  repeat for each line tMsg in tPending
    cancel item 1 of tMsg
  end repeat
end CancelPending

Ain't Rev great?  :-)
