Thank you SO much!  I'm having a blast working with your library.  So far,
I have a send loop running that sends out a "moveQuarry" event to all
registered buttons, and another button that clones a quarry button and
registers it for the movequarry event. (random movement)

I'll be adding a checkDistance event, which can then register a button with
the "flee" event if the hunter is close enough (temporarily unregistering
movequarry) and of course an "intersect" check.  if the hunter intersects,
unregister and hide self.

Speed so far is really good too. (lock and unlock screen as usual making a
huge difference)

Hopefully I'll get better at thinking this way so I can make better use of
the library.  (mvc is new to me)
