Normally I would moan to myself about how I would like to look that up but as I am reading this email (and nearly all others) on my iPad I cannot use the online dictionary as it can't handle a touch interface (the mothership is aware that they do have a non mobile friendly resource for a mobile capable product).

But this morning the printed dictionary arrived! 🎉

So I looked up executionContexts

Where I read...
'' A common use of the executionContexts is to obtain the name of the object and handler that called the current handler, this information is available as line -2 of the executionContexts."

BTW there was no mention of any caveats in using this property.
