I’ve actually implemented that part between conference commitments but I would like to also be able to pass a return delimited list of object references to the command. The ` and ` style lists are used for a number of commands and I think it all cases a list would be nice to have a return delimited list alternative. So I guess I know what I’m doing on the flight home ;-)
