Oh, Stein Vidar, don't *even* get me started! 

Of course you want an object. But do you know how
many really good programmers on this newsgroup are
deathly afraid of objects? It's an uphill battle, my
friend. :-)



P.S. I've been looking for a good compound widget
as object example for my book. I had something else
in mind, but maybe I'll code this up instead. And
if I can do it, anyone can. :-)
