This was very helpful -- your code is very readable, and combined with 
Petko's code, helped me with the solution.

Turns out that Petko's idea basically worked -- except doing an unset on 
an entire array causes the array to become undeclared, which SDV then 
sees as not there and so sets the usual default values. Setting to an 
empty array worked.

So I combined these approaches with an ROS pattern to get the final 
solution. Needs more testing, but for now seems to work great.
    $PmFormPostPatterns = array();
       '<split', '/\\(::\\w[-\\w]*:(?!\\)).*?::\\)/s', '');
    $PageTextVarPatterns['(::var:...::)'] =
       '/(\\(:: *(\\w[-\\w]*) *:(?!\\))\\s?)(.*?)(::\\))/s';
    $ROSPatterns["/\\(:myvar:(.*?)(:\\))$$/si"] =
       "(::myvar:$1::)";  //assumes myvar is the last in the list.

Thanks very much for offering suggestions -- I wouldn't have made it 
without them :)

And to you as well!
