aiyO and the AzhwAr

Dear bhAgavatOttamA-s,
It was extremely interesting to read the views of Sriman(s) Vijayanand, 
Sriram Ranganathan and Madhavakannan ("tiruvoi-mozhi swami"?).

Sri.Vijayanand in quoting Kamban wrote: "Another vishesham regd. this 
slokam is that,this is supposed One of the (Only)three places in Kamba 
Ramayanam ,where  Kambar has used the word "Aiyo"."

On a similar vein,would it be right to say that "aiyO!" too has been 
used only by 'tiruppAn-azhwar' in the 4000?

Can any of the learned members recall any other 'pasUram' where "aiyO" 
is used?

adiyEn dAsAnu-dAsan,
