If that's not what "you" (hypothetical function-writer) wanted,
then don't use varnames() on series you got via a list; you can't
be sure that these names won't collide with other stuff -- not
only functions, but variables of type other than series that you
have defined. That's the point of the "List.$i" syntax.
I guess if we wanted to get very nanny-ish about this we could
figure out a way to make varnames() fail on series whose names
you're not supposed to have access to inside a function.
No no, no need.
