Do ya have 'ta!? The MIB is hard enough to follow already. Moving all the
TC's to the front made it even harder (have we really reaped any tangible
benifit from this yet?). My 2 cents is I like having the statement right
there in the object. I don't have to look it up twice (or 3 times if
there's a TC associated). Is it a compile concern?
