No cause for alarm, I am still (mostly) rational ;).  I have been  
thinking of making a library of objects for things like select,  
route, trigger, etc. that would all be very consistent in their  
behavior, and easier to understand in their type handling.  So far,  
it's just a vague idea, but discussions like these are very helpful  
to spur that thinking.



If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess  
himself of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
