Hi Patrick - thanks for showing an interest. :)

I think I managed to pick all the difficult extensions to use :) of course
... Murphy's Law.

Thanks, I checked it out - yes I think I will just have to use lib.MyObject

In one area, yes... so that's not really a problem for me, but I understand
your point... it wouldn't be helpful for a lot of people - or they would
have to make a TV template just for the wiki page.

Thanks ... not sure how I would do things in the TS Object Browser .. that's
just my ignorance. 

As far as the last part, my problem is that Im not sure enough of the code
to actually go manipulating anything but the most obvious... I may try with
a couple of hacks, otherwise, I will just give up I think.

>Maybe I just repeated obvious things, then forget all this, 

Not at all ... glad for a response :)
