No, but they belong to 1.8.0. They were probably variable/prop/verb names that
reserved words that 1.8.0 wanted. They were renamed to something innocuous.
Indeed, I looked through the verbs again and lo and behold the keywords mentioned are being used as variable names. However, taking #20:explode as an example, it used the word 'break' on lines 5, 7, 9, and 12, and renamed them to break_. The confusion was that it mentioned this as a warning on line 18.
