Actually, it works for the new syntax (because I split on =, not on  
whitespace). The old syntax requires some work, and somehow I don't  
think this sed snippet completely does what I need. For lines  
starting with %SourceDoc, I need the rest of the line (not just the  
second whitespace delimited chunk). This script will set sourcedoc to  
the wholefile except the %SourceDoc line.

Still looking for something.
