Behaviors mainly deal with scripts and message paths. The engine 
includes the behavior button's stack as part of the regular search path 
when looking for IDs, but as I understand it, other objects themselves 
aren't part of behaviors. So you'd need to provide the same sort of path 
for other object references as we always have.

While I guess it isn't entirely accurate, I still think of behaviors as 
sort of a private backscript.
