... :-O ....
That cheat sheet web site of yours is AMAZING!!!
And, OptionSplit! I completely forgot about that. In fact, there's many techniques in your code that I didn't even know existed. I've been using TYPO3 for over a decade, I bought every book, and I studied the "split" documentation to the letter before emailing. I firmly believe this is the best CMS in the world *by far*, but when my computer science degree and the aforementioned resources lead me to see the innards like a foreign language ... well, it's not hard to see why exploit-a-day WordPress is gaining so much ground.
Anyway, I implemented the code really quick and it worked perfectly - I'll be studying/modifying it over the next few days and I'll post my stuff.
The list does it again ... Thank you!-Scott.

'no idea what this does' is a hint to study the manual.

I think you do not know what .split can do and what it does for you.
But also I think you are on the correct way, but need some more 
understanding of '.split', cObjNum, maybe optionsplit

you may get some more hints in this example, so it is in german:
