Reverse a list

No. Delimiters are terminators, not dividers. They belong to the text that
precedes them.

Ah k, so there is an implied terminator on the last item?

"1,2,3,4," is 4 items (comma terminator as you said, acts as a terminator
to the preceeding)  "1,2,3,4,5" is 5, so the trailing coma is implied.  At
least thinking of it this way helps me get past mental issuse caused by a
line that isn't a line.  (I guess ending with a cr doesn't make the next
(empty) line exist, it just creates the potential for a new line)
