But you were suggesting that as a general principle, not as solution
to that particular problem alone?  Your question about "a scenario"
also sounded as something rather general.  And that is how I
understood it and replied.

As for Lars's situation, there is a much simpler solution to that,
which I already pointed out earlier in this thread.  It is also much
cleaner, IMO.
