This is interesting to me. I don't quite know what your objection is,
but it sounds like you'd rather have the code duplication than have
the protocol space of WATagBrush grow. I'd personally much rather
eliminate the duplicated code.
But it's just a personal preference, for whatever it's worth. The
only reason I mentioned it was because I sympathized with Lukas's
laments over the additional duplicated code. It seems like there's a
simple answer here, but apparently I'm in the minority that doesn't
find it objectionable.
