Right. I'm getting a tattoo made of that.

But I guess I still can't get all my individual optionresponse blocks to have 
a different maxtries arg  unless I do it all in the perl script?

However, I probably wouldn't use this unless the issues about what overrides 
what in PARM allows me use this hard-coded value for selected problems, 
WITHOUT having to clear all (presently) overriding parameters in other 
resources... if you still get what I mean.
