Certainly, all that is possbile. On the other hand, experience shows 
that nobody does it if it's not immediately simple. And yes, people
are lazy, and prefer to work with stuff they understand rather then
hack on things they don't even know exist, as evidenced by all the
trace statements present in the code.

To my mind, it's a bit academic that it's possbile, if it's not used
my 99% of the people. It's too bad that we have such a woderful facility
in spy that could be so much more useful, and we don't make use of
it. Such a pitty.
