   aha! so that's why this works?

-define(foo,bla.
go()->?foo.

   more to the point, i still fail to see how this;

   receive
     X#r.a -> do_a();

   is more unclean, inconsistent and inelegant than this;

   XRA = X#r.a,
   receive
     XRA -> do_a();

   but hey, i'll take richard & richard's word for it.

   mats
