Mark,

I am not sure what problems you see with all those, to be very honest:-(
But you seem to see a problem where I don't... (probably...)

But, before you go, I would like to get an XMas present: can you tell me
_what_ the exact semantics of @instanceof is in your mind? I am not
kidding: I still do not know! And I would love to finalize my
implementation...

Have a very merry Xmas, happy holidays, and all that...

Ivan
