This is something I've thought about too. Even for my own use, coming back
to code I haven't looked at for some time, it's sometimes hard to remember
where a handler is located.
As part of the docs for my code, I have a script that goes through all the
scripts in a stack file, lists every handler alphabetically along with its
location and any other handlers that call it. That helps but some sort of
prefix (or suffix) notation sounds like a good idea.
