Bah, what I meant to end with was:

Just as the Pass By Reference idiom deserves a unique name to
distinguish it from Pass By Value (even though it is often Pass By
(address) Value internally), so Pass By Object Reference deserves a
unique name (even though it too is Pass By (reference) Value
internally).

Again, thanks for the discussion,
