I'm glad you thought so. I found the pb doc I wrote to be very raw -- don't
hesitate to suggest improvements :).

I'm not sure what the question is here...? I think you're asking "did you name
the perspective method that way to emphasize...", so: Yes and no :-). I named
it that way for two reasons; one, to emphasize the fact you noticed, but more
importantly to show the difference between the remote method and the local
method: it may have created confusion to do 'foo.callRemote("getQuote")'
because then the name of the method could either be referring to
perspective_getQuote or getQuote itself. Maybe I should have called it
Thanks for your feedback.
