Well I was under the impression that you needed the $$ only in the
$${NAME} construct, and thus the $$ is not needed for writing $NAME
for example. I guess I didn't realize we'd always compress $$ to $,
even when not in from of a {NAME} construct.

Add nesting to that, and I'm really confused ;-). Thanks for the
explanation. --DD
