While these are reserved words, the compiler correctly interprets them as
variables in context. The code is ugly in these cases, but functional. I'll
try to fix it

We may not have the special styles working in time for release 1, but I
will try.

I haven't seen this. It may relate to a bug elsewhere in code that is
sending us off into space.

I think we already have this fixed.

Yes.
