You suspected correctly, Alex.  Thanks for finding another mistake.  That
example only shows that the list of tokens is insufficient to reproduce the
_appearance_ of the handler.

Despite that weak example, the point was that the list of tokens is
insufficient to reproduce the _semantics_ of the handler, and therefore not
useful to "get a handler from a script."  Here's a better-chosen example of
two handlers with different semantics but the same tokens for the bodies of
the handlers:

on a
  put "foo" into bar
  return bar
end a

on b
  put "foo" into bar
  return "bar"
end b

I'm looking forward to it.
