but it seems to be catch-as-catch-can as to whether it works or not.

I have handlers in the group that sometimes trigger on the
revUpDateCellValue, but none of the other handles ever trigger.  I have
handlers like

on revWhatever a,b,c,d

ck a & cr & b & cr & c & cr & d


pass revWhatever

end revWhatever

none of these trigger as I move about and edit.  I put them in both the
table script and the group script.

sometimes revCellUpdate is called when a cell changes, and other times not.
