We could certainly shorten strings, and the exit argument could be omitted.
The match argument is more critical to answer some of the licensing security
concerns that have been expressed.

An uncaught error on my part, and one that makes the current layout

Yes, except for the extra comma. I think we intend:
runtime_license = ( library = <string> , entry = <string>, feature = <string>
[ , exit = <string> ] [ , match = <number> ] )
One more item for tomorrow's meeting. Is there a preference for
either new Mantis items for some of these issues, or for appending
BugNotes to the existing 314 item?
