in reply to Frivolous function names

Firstly, I hope you wrote summon_foo() as a wrapper to get_foo() and create_foo(). :-)

Personally, I like using abcd and efgh as my scratchpad scripts. Of course, loving golf as much as I do, I almost always have a window open to abcd in some directory where I'm golf'ing. :-)

    Close. There is no create_foo. Just summon_foo. In my case there should not be duplicate things in existence, and hence it makes no sense to create unless you first try to get, and furthermore if I some day wanted to add locking logic, this would give me a clear place to do that.
