why not? there is also a spigot object, when you want to search for a 
mark in the text, then simply send spigot a "0" message, then search and 
then turn spigot on again.

and the msg file problem...
hmm, maybe give explicit messages.
I tried to replace the "bang" with [skip 1, this( and this seems to work

btw. there is also a coll object, which is maybe even more powerful than 
  the msgfile (don't know about its stability). it is in the cyclone
