Not exactly.  In the first case, if the 2nd argument (the 1) isn't a
number, then assume that your grabbing the 1st one.  In the second case, if
the 1st argument is a number represented by a word, then the object is the
next argument, otherwise the object is the 1st argument.  Much like the
dotmode is currently, just tweaked a bit.

I'm not saying it would be easy.. but could be done.
