Ok, cool. I interpreted your response about the controller approach being
on par with the lookups as advocacy rather than laziness (I'm good with
laziness) and got scared SB was using that style too. No point wasting time
on it from the sounds of it.

In the game I'd like to use the controllers though but we can look at that
over there :)
