You're right
  := operator on ARRAYs was not allowed in Oberon-2 but it is in Oberon-7

    Hi Chris, 
    Yes thank you for the pointer, been there, done that, have some
    Type extension, and procedure variables, are the basis of OOP.
    I learn to use, though often surprised things are possible, unlike in
    Seeing some ETH Oberon modules, COPY() is quite frequently used,
    where in Oberon-07, just `:=' assignment will do.
