        That seems reasonable! Lets see a demo of a good use
of events (not covered by the initial threads library).

        So do I. But please separate _wrong_ from
_inadequate_. Also, Bill should note it is very hard to
criticize details of a model, when you think that the problem
is the model itself: when considering criticism, keep in mind
that a critique is likely to be weak because of this and
_help_ who is being critical to formulate the criticism.
You may have made the right choices, but it is useful to help
build the strongest possible attack on your system, so you can
really be sure.
