You're right, of course.   You concerns are in my first set of 
questions, but I am a little afraid of thinking deeply on it at the 
moment.  I was thinking that this defines something I am calling 
virtualization circuits, connected when an object is created.  I am 
thinking VPN like circuits, here, but it is a sloppy thought.  
Otherwise, I was answering a vm impl question which will become 
important (it is important for my eventual refs) and gives us some idea 
of the implementation costs with doing these things in the VM.

Now back to the originally scheduled program...what is a virtualization 
layer, etcetera.   I thought your first post was dead on and I am glad 
I didn't answer it, because quite a bit has resulted from your posted 
concerns.   I share the same concerns with you, Colin.  There is no way 
I could have done any of the EventualSending impl without access to the 

Do you think Mark is drawing diagrams?  He really hates doing that, 
from what i have heard...  ;-)
