It's not really an abstraction to me, because all I need to think is of the "flow". So the messages go up trough all the stations, unless they're "trapped" by a handler. Besides then executing, that handler can even choose to pass the message on (pass myMessage), to continue the "flow".

See, that confuses me, because there's no instatiating happening. An object/card/whatever script either is in the path or not, thats how it is to me.

I'll write you down for the Saturday in a week, ok?
