Ok. Could you present an example?
Let me explain what bothers me. I simply fail to see why
a call-back created with bind() should silently behave differently from
what it forwards to. IMO that will create confusion.

even so, it won't prove the current strategy is right, merely mine is wrong

ok, but I do assume that binding one parameter out of eg two is used

Yes, but only when the customer gets a better service :-)
