I like the simple idea of an assignment, but you're right: 99 is
kind of random. As Kay points out later any number will work and
there is no such thing as a particular channel all the than the one
that the parser is listening to. the user can come up with whatever
constants they want and use them like
constant=MY_CHANNEL_OF_WEIRD_STUFF; with no problem.

that is an assignment statement... not sure where the confusion
would come in other than the constant. it is a problem of
documentation not the tool I would say.
