Hi Ben, all,

Thinking about this, I quite like Benjamin's approach 2 below.  One reason is that it allows the public/private classification to be orthogonal to the note function.  Also for the other advantages he lists.  I would be interested to see if others also prefer this alternative.

Cheers,

Al.
