Left side expressions

Group designators may be used to assign a value to the attributes of several notes at once. For example, the $Rule:

$Color(children)="red" 

turns all the current note's children to red.

Designators may also be lists of notes, either explicit literal string list

$Color(/config/one;/config/two)="red" 

or implicitly computed via a find():

$Color(find($Price>5))="red" 

$Color(find($Color=="red"))="red" 

or implicitly computed by an expression enclosed in quotation marks

$Color("collect_if(all,$Price>5,$Path)")="red" 

$Color("collect_if(all,Color=='red',$Path)")="blue" 

In the last example note the need for nested single and double quotes.
