That makes more sense, thank you. I'm still not sure if it's justified, 
in my head; but I guess that may be because of my C# background, where 
it's encouraged to err on the side of too verbose as opposed to too 
cryptic.

Unfortunately I still don't see a practical use for the thing though.

Thanks!
