    Yup.  Little advantages here and there that I hadn't thought up of
    originally keep coming out of the woodwork...

I take this as a sign that the messaging model is the right way to go, at least until machines start maintaining the code ;o)

Whether messaging is the Holy Grail (or not) is pretty much beside the
point -- it seems to be the only model the human brain can understand.

I repeat myself (as usual) but I urge you to keep this point in mind
for marketing purposes.  If an amateur like me can grasp the concepts,
then even managerial types should get it.
