I just want to make sure that you understand that *call* is only necessary
to call a handler that is not in the message path. Also, *start using* is
for libraries. Otherwise you use *open*. However, if you *start using* a
library stack, this inserts that stack into the message path and so there is
no need to use *call* to execute any handlers in that stack.
