I note in the author's manual the following:
"By default, the list of options is presented in front of the foils. Using
the optional
<drawoptionlist /> tag, the list of options can be embedded into the foil."

What is the syntax for embedding the list in the foil?  i.e. in the template

<foil location="random" value="Green" name="Foil1">
<startouttext />This is foil One. It is currently set to "Green."<endouttext

Where and how do <drawoptionlist /> and options="('Red','Green')" fit?

This leads to the question of whether it is possible to have a group of
foils, some (or all) of which have different values in their drop down
lists?  If so, I presume that would be the function of the <drawoptionlist
/> tag.
