So am I wrong when assuming your recent commits could be slightly 
contradicting your positive feelings about the suggestions you are 
referencing? I feel there will be quite some overlap if and when file: 
gets implemented. The less alternatives we have, the less we have to 
document and support. From the user's perspective, your resource-action 
based solution is brain-dead simple, but I believe it complicates 
matters on an implementation (and maybe also performance) level.

Just trying to better understand.

If I'm plain wrong about all this, I won't be afraid to admit so - I 
just found the seminal reference to Stefano's 2-mail pattern and code 
'ownership' ideas, and am feeling pretty humble about it: (long long time ago).
