This point is correct. Sorry about the other one. The question still remains.

I have not used syntax much. When I write the syntax command,

syntax varlist(min=2 max=2 numeric) [if] [in] [, noconstant]

I find it parses

mycommand weight weight2 , constant

differently than

mycommand weight weight2, constant

The top parses `2' to weight2 and the bottom parses `2' to weight2, (includes the comma). Use of tokenize varlist avoids this problem, but is it a long standing feature of syntax to require option commas to be separated by white space? I can't remember being careful about how I type that interactively.
