No, there's no reason I couldn't create a new instance each time. I'd
started out trying to find a simple way to implement something that's only
rarely going to be used in this particular app, and it turned out to be
hairier than I'd expected. After I get this app running I'll probably
revisit it, but since it *is* working right now... You know, `good enough'
is the enemy of `the best'.
