I don't know a simple way to do what you want.  It might be possible
by using function captures, and/or match time function captures, but I
consider the chucks to be simpler.

It might also be possible to write two patterns, and call LPeg twice.
First to do the "full" match, and then a second time to get the
"items" (and "separator").

I see Name:: inserted into the chunks.  Do you really not see it?

Good luck!
