Ah, thanks for clearing that up, Quanah. Gavin, should the documentation
be updated to reflect this?
The docs only present the "," because that's the preferred way. The other
forms are supported mainly for historical reasons. You should stick with
the documentation. The tests should use the documented form.
I checked several
sources, but none seemed to definitively identify all of the acceptable
delimiters. I'm happy to submit a patch for the
Admin Guide, if you like?
A patch for the tests would be preferable.
