Hi Mark,
Interesting to read that totally opposite approaches are both favoured.

Btw. I go the same way as Sadhu and feel comfortable with my way, especially
in maintenance cases, where I don't have to think about where a handler
could be placed. In smaller projects my "weird place" for almost all
handlers is the stack script. I do actually have only one single mouseup
handler in stack script, with cases of targets. So I uncoupled logic from
design, what has advantages and disadvantages. I don't know, if and how my
approach would work in bigger projects, but up to now, its good for me.
