this is a really dumb and simple feature suggestion, but i think it will speed up the ability to script considerably, and it seems as if it would be quite trivial to add support for it.

anyway, no modification to the way tokens currently work, but i think it would be excellent to have the ability to use something like:

$1(text goes here) would return text

$2-3(testing token scripting methods) would return token scripting.

$-1(well then) would return then

$1-(bunch of text goes here) would return bunch of text goes here

have it determine which token you would like to use either by always assuming space, or even better use the character that was used when the tokenize command was issued..

hopefully this isn't a feature so small that it's overlooked. i believe it would improve the speed [speed of writing, not speed of processing] and readability of scripts.
