Thanks...  I must say that the code is really disgusting viewing it 
again after quite an absence and with the perspective of having written 
a commercial program (jGuru server).  Ick Ick Ick!  Oh well, I was a 
prototype guy.  With luck, future work will benefit from my newfound 
respect for real coding! ;)

Sure is...i'll update the doc.  It doesn't affect parsers, only a 
lexer's nextToken--not even lexer rules that call other lexer rules.  
This is a prelude to the future ;)
