   As usual, making a test case proved enlightening.  I was defining a
command within another command definition, like so:

1: \newcommand{\firstcom}[2]{
2:    \newcommand{\nextcom}[2]{
3:        Do things with ##1, ##2
4:    }
5: }

    I wanted to pull out lines 2-4 into a separate file.  It doesn't
work; apparently the part of TeX that processes the # escaping blows
    Is this a bug?  Is it documented anywhere?
