Hi John,

I'm not quite sure I agree on this : it only takes a
couple of lines of code to script this yourself, and
at which point should the engine do it for you ?
After the mouseDown message has gone all the way to
the back of the message path? Or before any of your
scripts get to it, thus rendering any card level
'mouseDown' mesages that normally get triggered when
you click next to the controls on your card?
