As I said in the previous message, with class level composition I can
(I did!) implement an abstract combinator that can just do that: if a
give condition is met, the combinator may handle the message even
*without* running the layout.

I believe that the combinaotr semantics is an unknown object here.
I've been investigating it, since I wrote a class to map it. I know
how much powerful it can be.

But if I'm wrong I'd like you to show me where I get it wrong.
