What, specifically, do you need a third argument for?
The arcport spell from the ftp site includes directions for
adding an argument to manual spells, if that's what you
want (so you can pass it strings - I mentioned in a previous
email, but I used this for creating a control weather spell,
where the string passed to the spell is either "better" or
