Thanks for the great suggestions!  We'll have to chew over them for a
while, and figure out the cost (of implementing this as well as for
our customers to convert existing code), so I'm filing a Request For
Enhancement (RFE) for our experts to ponder over.  But the uniformity
of your suggested interface is very appealing.  Thanks again!
