thanks for accomodating the `:+' syntax extension.  i can confirm that
i can now successfully flop grammars that make use of type addendums.
i was specifically working on SRG, and it turned out i had to increase
the PET compile-time constant CONJ_TABLE_SIZE.  i suspect other Matrix-
derived grammars may need that too, as there are some definitions with
large numbers of conjunctions.  i just checked that patch into SVN.

i also tried these latest binaries on the ERG, and the behavior appears
unchanged from earlier versions (which is good, obviously :-).  hence i
have checked updated binaries into the LOGON tree (for those using it).

                                                       all best  -  oe
