Sorry, that sounded more pessimistic that it was supposed to.

What I meant was, there are probably better solutions out there,
but they haven't been implemented yet and it will take some work
(both defining them and coding them) to get there. At least, that's
what I think I've heard so far (don't forget I'm the "newbie" here :-)

I'd be interested to hear any ideas along these lines that are
brewing (if this is the right place to discuss them).
