There have been a (relatively) few times I wished I could do this, but
with the Prefix() keyword we can accomplish a similar thing by using a
couple of extra moves/evals around the I/O.  So it is not as important
to me as something I haven't figured out how to work around (such as
the lack of operational descriptors for numeric fields).
