Brilliant!  Utterly brilliant!  I am currently going through a
six-year-old-son-induced _Star Wars_ obsession revival anyway (I've
just bought lego kits for an X-wing and TIE fighter) so this really
hits the spot.  I am prepared to back down on Get/Set Option methods
in the Java binding, but on this issue, I will not be gainsaid: A3PI
it is!
