Heh.  I have to deal with a volume of code about 4 times the size that
is publicly visible, so that is not lost on me :).

I do plan to slowly deprecate it, with warning messages printed each
time a "bad" remote method is called.  Otherwise I'd be sure to miss at
least one remote notification on the first pass (after all, part of the
problem is that they're difficult to locate right now since they're not
tagged with anything distinctive...)
