Hi Jacqueline,

Right now there isn't a scan! But this means that I have to do this  
each time a Handler is called (or maybe get an execution error):

if the script of ObjectX contains theHandlerName then

Which is slow, so I thought it better to scan all the Objects and  
build an Array of all the functions in a script at "start using"  
time. The scan is performed only once and should result in better all  
round performance.

This is the extra work I was talking about before I release it to  

All the Best
