Actually, with all the muttering in this group of late on how to redo struct-
valued returns, returning a structure probably IS nonportable--sometimes it
will be reentrant, sometimes not.

And, of course, return of structures was absent before the advent of Version 7--
so struct-valued functions are not portable to Version 6 and its clones.
