How about something like this:
Note the listarith trick -- the expression a*[b,c] is simplified with
listarith:false, so does not expand to [a*b,a*c] even when it is returned
from vfactor. But if that expression is resimplified later, it will expand
out. To avoid that, you could use "box" if necessary.
