That sounds familiar. What was the reason why the new punctuation
routine cannot return `punctuation' for unhandled punctuation

> `semantic-lex-token-set' -> `semantic-lex-type-set'
> `semantic-lex-token-value' -> `semantic-lex-type-value'
> `semantic-lex-token-put' -> `semantic-lex-type-put'

That's a good idea. Thanks!
I've been pretty busy of late as well. It's pumpkin throwing season
again, and my catapult building team is behind schedule. We've been
spending many a late night in construction. I will regale you all
with pictures when I finish the website.
