actually before you do, let me check some of the tex expansion side,
was just trying now and \protected not working quite as I thought,
but it's late, someone else free to try

I'll report back later




\input xAb


looks like it is expanding A anyway so perhaps I'm just wrong about
\protected, it happens:(

! I can't find file `xxb'.
