Now, what happens if you have two or three widgets open each of which 
is calling MPFIT through some means. Would a common block still work?
And please think once more: may not be possible now, but I am quite certain
that RSI will one day support SMP, so it could indeed happen that those
calls to MPFIT were executed simultaneously! I'd go for the keyword - this
is clean.
