Yes, in principle it ought to be OK. But it's confusing the loop parser
because the dot in "bc.from" is getting mixed up with the dots in the
"from..to" formulation. The alternative,
works alright. I'll see about fixing this.
That's now fixed in git. Not sure about the snapshots, since
sourceforge seems to be flaky at present (uploads timing out).
