You're absolutely right, thanks for noticing that.  Fixed.

You mean "nfx", I believe.  Actually, I left that one unchanged by intent.  It's plausible you might want to invoke that directly, or that there's an existing "nfx" macro you want to invoke.  In contrast, the "$bracket-apply$" is really only for when you use the brackets (as implied by the name).
