Thanks for pointing this one out. I added votes as well.

I like the idea of a struct-like assembly, but wouldn't the same thing
be accomplished by using numeric constants (and possibly faster, if I
understand the way the numeric arrays work):

constant kName = 1
constant kParty = 2
constant kAddress = 3
-- etc

put "R" into member[kParty]
