I see two ways of dealing with this:

1. Override the mouseUp handler in the objects that need special 
handling. That way the behavior script will take care of the other 
objects, and you can still have specialized actions without having to 
test for the target.

2. If you need different mouseUp actions in every object that uses the 
behavior script, don't put the mouseUp handler in the behavior script. 
You're just creating extra work for yourself that you have to unwind 
later on.

Will dig through the archives when I have time.
