On the other hand, given the function below, it might be more
efficient for the calling handler to do the work, since it already
knows the the long name and has the data. I mean that if a handler is
going to send a message to a control, along with some data, it can
certainly perform whatever actions are required, itself.

In your original example:
function PutMessage theMessageID
Looks up theMessageID in the Array built in ListenForMessages and
calls (via a "send" statement) the handler with the name theMessageID
at the location(s) specified in the data part of the array.
Since putMessage knows the location, and has the data, it can do the
work itself, avoiding any context issues altogether.
There may be other issues I don't know about, of course, but I'm sure
you see what I mean.
