Sorry, Paul - I suspect I had seen that before, but forgotten it.

It was a good idea back then, and still is :-)

Though, if we are going to add some form of "with colkeys", I believe 
there should be a version which says that the first line of the input 
contains the column keys; thus you could do

Split X indexed using cr and tab with colKeys tColumns      and tColumns 
contains the column keys
or simply
Split X indexed using cr and tab with colKeys and the first line of X 
contains the column keys (and line 1 is omitted from the results)

If no-one tells me that's crazy (and why), I'll go add that to the 
feature request.
