  Hmm... looking into it in a little more detail, I think it would be
even easier to do it another way.  The code in CVS head has been
updated to allow for ":=", to over-write existing attributes.  But I
think it might be even easier to simply use the hashes as-is, and
replace the existing attribute lists.

  i.e. put the attributes into perl hashes, and then make those perl
hashes definitive for the new values of the attributes.  This would
involve throwing away the previous attributes entirely.  So you would
have to be *very* careful about modifying the hashes, but you would
have complete flexibility.

  Comments?  I don't think this will go into 1.1.3, though...
