Thanks for writing this up, it helped me understand where the  
confusion is coming from.

I think of the Context Key IS the opaque handle itself.  It is a  
handle to the "Context", which is an implementation specific  
structure in and of itself.

I assumed that from the name that it was a 'key' in a list/hash/map  
of contexts, and I think from your email that this isn't what you're  
thinking.  RIght?

What do other folks think?
