That was probably my mistake at that time... looked at my old tests
and found that i somehow dropped that PI in the DCP method. Thanks for
clarifying that one, Donald.

Nevertheless, if I do need some more control like in my case (there
is some quite asynchronous action while creation of the actual content
which is done on maybe another host) i might want to handle exceptions
and alike ... I will be forced into writing a Producer rather than
a DCP method, i am probably right there ?!? :)

Sorry guys, if I misled You there... but this way we all learned a
little :)
