No, this was an oversight.  I'll put an enhancement request in to the VEE
team to add this feature in a future version.  (It was something of a
back-door feature in the older versions, which is why it ended up being
dropped by oversight.)

As Steve Timian showed, it seems that an ordinary AlphaNumeric with a
Collector will do this quite well.

Please stay in touch.
