because iraf returns filenames with the syntax we have been discussing 
and that getting things tied up with python and pyfits then requires 
some parsing of the filename, etc... which is what in my opinion a high 
level pyfits function call should handle for me.
Call it fuzzy logic if you want, and it is (thank to IRAF ....) , but I 
am sick of parsing filenames in python when writing pyraf scripts and 
would like to see this done for me... :-)
