The m_symbolarray-abstraction is a convenience wrapper around
[element symarray symbols]
[get sym name]
which includes some logic to manage the array's content. [makefilename %d-tab]
btw. cannot manage anything.
So [makefilename %d-tab] is doing something different. You should not use
m_symbolarray to replace it. Only use a symbolic array, where you need it.
