me vs. this?

Well, I don't know. Now that it's pointed out to me, I see in the Doc
under 'this' only mentions of 'this card' and 'this stack' . . . It
seems a little counterintuitive, though, doesn't it? to have an
apparent "plain English" command with what feels like an arbitrary
limitation on its reference? Why shouldn't "this X" refer to
whichever X is the "current" one of its kind (group, button,
script . . .)?
