Good. 

To spell out a couple of issues here: 

1. Name space conflicts are discussed 
at [P] matrix define. [version 8: p.281]. 

2. An early (I guess) decision with -display- 
was that -display- doesn't choke on a bare variable 
name, but looks inside the first observation. 
Odd, often surprising, occasionally useful?
