I think I agree with Patrick.  And I've pretty much written it already
using the 'this' approach.  I need to resolve a few issues in my
implementation and then I'll give up the code.  At this point it's
only a skeleton interface, no real functionality.  I started with the
non-this approach but then changed to the this approach, so it's fairly
easy to go either way...
