hi, Tim,

thanks for the reply.

if anyone has any knowledge in this area, i'd be curious to hear.

for the record, things -- lists and lisps -- being equal, the function
you presumably meant to write was =org-table-to-lisp=.

=org-babel-ref-resolve= is convenient to use (as you provide a REF,
rather than create a [temp] buffer, visit the file, whatever).  but, it
isn't clear to me what functions (=org-babel-ref-resolve= and/or
=org-table-to-lisp=) should be considered part of the "Emacs Org Mode
API". :)

(i've gotten "around" the issue by prepending my e-mail addresses with
[: SPACE].)

cheers, Greg
