Correct, this works. I was just hoping for the ability to use these methods
"directly" on a text struct member without these extra steps or
overhead, but perhaps the text being a member of a struct makes things
a little bit more complicated... I could see an abstraction using a
"proxy" [text] instance and automating the [text fromlist/tolist] steps
helping out the situation though. Thanks!
