Indeed. Sorry for having disseminated FUD. My only defense is that it had been a while since I read Apo4 and I had forgotten about PRE and POST blocks.

One question that I couldn't answer from my (quick) reappraisal of Apo4. Is there any intent that PRE & POST blocks will be "turn-offable" (with apologies to the BG ads) via command line switch or other similar mechanism?

    Certainly, that's one of the reasons we later separated them out from FIRST and LAST blocks. In any event it'd be pretty easy to redefine the grammar to make them no-ops.
