    I've used it a few times, for programmable calculator type things
(w/o floating point), but could never get my source files to import,
so I ended up doing a lot of manual import (copy/paste).  As Ganesan
points out, it doesn't seem to be supported.
    I think the "+" is for the few Palm-specific modules.  There are a
few modules with interesting names (palmform, palmdm, palmevent), but
I couldn't find examples or documentation.
    Another short side is no regex/re module.  I don't have stuff to
scan on the PDA, but it would be convenient at times to experiment
with an expression.
