Ah, very cool.  Thanks.

As for the inconsistent bg refs which started this thread, my first 
inclination is that since consistent absolute refs are critical, any 
differences in what "long ID" returns based on what card you're on (or 
where you're sitting, or what day of the week it is, or other factors 
that don't change the object being referred to) would be a bug, since 
it's counter to the design goal of "long ID".

Was that resolved in a way that would illuminate me?
