Well, I don't think so. No expansion triangle beside it (unlike, say, a 
list). Double-clicking gives a message saying debug-watch isn't 
available (because I'm using Personal), but that's not what I want 
anyway. It looks as though a Match object falls under what Help calls 
Opaque Data, though I'm not really clear why. Am I, as so often, 
missing something really obvious?
