ok, good to know.

the simplicity in this case was only intended to have a clear  
example. of course you are right in that no sporking is required here.

i was wondering from a more conceptual point of view, which version  
would be better or more appropriate for chuck.
as you say, the first example might be a little simpler than the second.
still the second example seems clearer to me, well at least to what  
i'm used to...
but i was a little concerned with the fact, that the shred ids kept  
increasing so rapidly (calling a new shred every click) and wondered  
wether chuck would really like that.

thanks for your explanations, i'll be back with more questions...
