Hmm. I guess one can do that. I may indeed do that when I
package the script. All it needs is an extra search (grep) step.
OF Auxiliary, Mixed, and National Arms The second sort of
unprofitable arms are auxiliaries, by whom I mean, troops brought to
help and protect you by a potentate whom you summon to your aid;
Auxiliaries may be excellent and useful soldiers for themselves, but
are always hurtful to him who calls them in; for if they are
defeated, he is undone, if victorious, he becomes their prisoner.
