I have weaned myself off of "wait" as well.

But in this very special instance, where the wait command is only 
implemented when you absolutely know the user has his hand on the mouse and his 
finger on a button, it should not cause any undue delay or harm.

That said, if for some reason you "send" either message to the button that 
contains those handlers, you have to wait, though there is of course no 
confusion. This is useless information, unfortunately.
