A. E. Siegaman basically had a polynomial in several variables say (x,y,z)
as I understand it wanted the coefficient of (x) as returned by the

  poly = 3x + Pi x - 2x y^2 + x z^3;

   3 + Pi

Then if poly is a polynomial in (w,u,v,x,y,z) you can get the coefficient of
x by using the following.

Part[ CoefficientList[poly, {w,u,v,x,y,z}],  1,1,1,,2,1,1]

Lookup CoefficientList on my website 
for a detailed explanation of this function.
