Indeed! Definitely the way to go. I *think* this idea originaly came
from Gerald Hilderink, creator of CTJ (the 'other' java csp library)

Peter's original paper was concerned with implementing graceful
termination for occam/transputer, where adding such functionality to the
channel was not an option. He also likes the new idea.
