As usual when you hang around here you find other ways to do what you had in
mind. I think I am going to stick with the solution I came up with but your
idea has  a lot to recommend it and I will no doubt consider this approach
in the future.

As an aside, I have noticed that folks use parentheses after commands.  It
seems that these can be used after almost any command. I know that
parentheses are used after functions and can be used with properties.  In
What other circumstabses can they be used?
