Okay, tried I tried:

[perl interpolate="1"]
my $ret;
foreach my $item (@{$Items})
   $ret .= "Quantity for ".$item->{'code'};
   $ret .= "is ".[quantity-name]."<br/>\n";
return $ret;

And got this:

Quantity for 100100 is ARRAY(0x9b605a0)
Quantity for 100008 is ARRAY(0x9b605dc)
Quantity for 100011 is ARRAY(0x9b605dc)
Quantity for 100033 is ARRAY(0x9b605dc)

I looked at the resulting arrays->[0] and found a single value '0' for
each, anything else (i.e. [1] or [2]) were undefined.  

Same result if I try [item-price] or [item-quantity] or any other
special tag.
