:-)  Why bother with a gun?  I just have to figure out how to explain the
importance of hoisting to Shannon.  :-)

I think hoisting needs to be in the design of v3 and I have the suspicion
that v3 will be as radically different from v2 as v2 was to v1 so that
minor issue will be lost in the cacophony of screaming and hair-pulling.

Take care,
