Thanks, Ed.  My code read of Interpolate.pm was a bit off -- I was 
thinking that the name of the sub to call was the text contained with 
the [box-exec]...[/box-exec] tags.

Incidentally, the sub that's defined in VENDROOT/catalog_before.cfg is 
just defined with:
Sub <<EOF
sub bar_link {

I don't believe that the "bar_link" sub name actually matters in this 
context, and I don't see anything here that suggests to my eye that this 
subroutine is registered with Interchange under the name "exec".  What 
am I missing?

Thanks again.
