Yes yes yes yes YES! *BINGO*! That works very nicely. I'd still like to see
sequential commands supported, just for backward compatibility, but this

Probably not, but I'll wait patiently. Hopefully, other developers will
follow suit on this type of functionality ... (excluding those who've
already done it, of course)
