function attributes are like function objects

After I sent, I realized how smarmy that last message sounds.

I don't mean to imply that Barry's information was inappropriate. I can 
totally see how what I wrote could be read to indicate I didn't realize
that function objects can be aliased and passed around and yada yada.

I just want to avoid losing the point; is the function going to have 
access to this bit of state its carrying around, or is that reserved
for outside parties?

Sorry, Barry, I appreciate you trying to help. I should be more careful
about my tone.
