The way I understand it after reading that bugzilla entry is that it was 
requested, added, but then removed.  I've found a way around with some 
perl<->mysql scripting that so far is working to my purposes.  But this 
kind of magic word would be a whole lot easier.  It's kind of hard to 
figure out if this feature will be added or not.  I'll think I'll just 
clean up my perl code and move along unless there's something that can 
be done to help that bugzilla entry end up getting resolved into a new 
feature.  Thanks.
