Some interesting share names

in trawling through the source code for a documentation project I am
working on, I found something interesting.

The following works:

     Comment = some comment
     path = some path

Now, I am sure that other macros, like %m, etc, will work there as well.

I can think of some interesting uses for this, and wondered if anyone else

This, along with the %$(env-name) macro expansion are not documented in the
man pages.

Perhaps I have to add some to the man pages :-)
