Ohhhhhh.  Yes, I was missing that you're building a full table of 
callback procedures and passing the arguments in the setup, rather than 
passing the arguments along with the query.

Funny, I'd considered doing that (albeit without the same neat 
interface), but was rather put off at the time by the thought of saving 
an extra 30-odd closures that duplicate data I've already got 
elsewhere.  Perhaps it's not such a big deal, but still, instinctively 
I'm inclined to think it's kind of wasteful...this is the sort of thing 
I might check out and quantify to inform my work, though.

The send/suspend/{dispatch,callback} interface is nice, in any case.
