For these I create separate classes. For one, it means that your code  
stays inside your development environment: from time to time, when I  
do senders of a method, it turns out I already used the method I'd  
like to find information on. Code in workspaces, and even worse, in  
external text file do not do this for me. Matter of opinion, I guess.

BTW: Which cdrik are you ? Since you give the impression that you  
know me...
