I guess nobody listens anymore. I've covered $subinst in classes for  
years - as well as writing about it occasionally (even on this list).  
I carry on about understanding the difference between a field and its  
contents, especially as it applies to container fields like popup  
menus and subwindows where the contents of the field is an instance  
of some type. Perhaps it was too dry a topic and not entertaining  
enough... ;-)

Guess I need to do a Tech news article (or series) on subwindows soon...
