Quite. I meant "rv 0". My point is that I would really like "mrv &0 &99" 
to pretty much do "rv 0" followed in turn by each of the "rv associd" 
choices. I guess you are just pointing out that they are kind of different?

And correct, you need to do the assoc or the like before in older 
versions, but as you can see in this example, there is a "lpe"
