What are you trying to accomplish?

I've found that Notifications are good ways of handling user  
interaction from low-level code. The default action can do the  
conventional thing - open a FillInTheBlank or whatever - but higher  
level code can intercept them, do something special, and resume with a  
"user-supplied"  value.

Also... what's a toothpick?
