Hello Randal,

RLS> dictionary.  This is how the classic "dependents" system works as well: the
RLS> dependencies are in a WeakDictionary so that when the watched object goes
RLS> away, the dependencies are also cleaned.

thanks for some free education (no smiley, I mean it), now I'll do
some homework and look up dependency.

I use it in some places without knowing of it's "weakness".
