The current solution was the one which used the least space. If you look in the Project Browser at "Message Box" or "revIDEProjectBrowser" that have two behaviors that the spacing for between the behaviors is minimal to save space, also that is the reason why they are oval so you can reduce the spacing between behaviors.

Sorry, I'm missing something in that explanation.
Yes, what I see for the messagebox is 2,1,9 meaning that there are nine 
lines in the object script and two stacked behaviors. The first behavior 
has 839 lines and the second one has 805 lines. I fail to see why it 
would be a problem if the displayed numbers were 805,839,9.

Well, for one thing, it gives me an idea of how much effort I'm about to 
get into when looking at modifying a behavior script. And gives me some 
direction as to whether I'd want to add more code to an 
already-overloaded behavior or spawn a second one or put code in a main 
script.
