Yes, "strings" may not be the best keyword for that context. We already
have "Rvec" so we could use "Rstrings". But if we think this
might be helpful for programmatic handling of other block-commands then
a more generic keyword would be wanted, maybe "cmdstrings" or similar.
I guess you mean Rmat and qvec, or isn't it actually just R and q?
Anyway, I like "lines" because it's all about passing several lines in a
BTW this facility (with keyword "strings", and for
"restrict" only) is
now in git. (I'm confident it's a harmless experiment.)
OK, let's try it.
