Oh I see.  I've personally had a hard time debugging with CoR.  It's
somewhat of a PITA but so is this interceptor stuff which basically does the
same thing.

I thought about using CoR instead of the interceptor design.  I was
wondering if there would be some kind of benefit there.  I guess both are
equally problematic when it comes to debugging.  Now I guess we have to deal
with both.  I'm not too happy with that ... would rather use one mechanism

How many links do you have in your chain?  If it's small do you need to use
the pattern?
