-> I recently downloaded twill and have already written a bunch of tests

hi, Shalabh,

several people have requested this; I don't want to put return values in
(makes the semantics of the language too complicated!) but I could
easily do something like have __match__ be set to the last match found.
Dunno why I didn't think of that before...
