Oh, I know that. :-) I've heard plenty of complaints about how arcane
Morphic is. I figure, it's the easiest way to do graphics programming in
Squeak. Given all that it does, of course it's complex.

These apparently don't do anything. But, that's OK, because I can, as
Bert suggested, just send "evt hand #grabMorph: self".

Except, oops, that's NOT OK, because now mouseUp: apparently never gets
sent to my Morph.

So, I still need help. Thank you both very much.
