Right. The problem here is with the "one-and-only" function. When you have
only one value for your attribute, then there is one and only value, so 
string-one-and-only function returns it. When you have multiple values,
however, the string-one-and-only function returns an error, because there
is not one and only one value for your attribute.

There are two ways to handle this. First, you can encode the string 
in a Target, which takes care of iterating through bags of values for you.
Second, you can use something like the is-in function, to see if the 
you're looking for is in the collection of values associated with your

Does that make sense?
