Thanks for the contribution, it is much appreciated!  (And used).  Quick

It seems that this might be useful for more general purposes as well.  E.g. 
cmd='/usr/bin/spell' to spell check a block of text, and return the results 
to a [seti].  Perhaps two things could happen:

o One could derive a more general purpose usertag that ran any given 
command on some text.  It could be called [exec], [globify], [transform], 
or something like that.

o For security, one might derive a [encrypt] that doesn't take options or a 
key, but uses preset options from catalog.cfg.

(also, 'encryp' was misspelled on the << documentation line)

Thanks again Ed!
