[Sidefx-houdini-list] sanity check: stamping string attributes

Some fields handle expressions in limited/different ways - like the group
mask in SOPs. Perhaps the obj merge field isthe same? Try all manner of
string concat and expansion techniques:

`"blah" + "foo"`
foo`blah`
`strcat()`
etc

Something should stick. Good luck!

Cheers
