Ha… OK back in my box then ;-)

FWIW I would dearly love send in time to remember the caller and if the target is the caller then allow private handlers. I often have to write long complicated handler names for things simply because they will be in the message path and I want to avoid their conflict with other handlers… It’s a little hairy a proposition when it comes to behaviors as I’m not really sure what happens if you send to `this me`… you probably don’t get the script locals related to `me`… would need some testing I guess.

Cheers
