Thanks.  But I don't like it.  Making this additional option violates the
KISS principle.

I am not in the least concerned about entering [/]] for example for a
runner.  Because anyone that will be using this technique will almost always
be calling up a previous object message and EDITing it for a new object
rather than try to poke it in fresh each time.

Further the vast majority of this capability will be used at special events
and again, editing a previous object will be the method of entry.  The
TH-D72 has a 100 message list,  I can go back even now and call up some
messages objects I sent LAST year during a hiking event.  Edit one, send it,
and now it is at the top of the list again.

So when you consider that the [/X] only has to be entered once and from then
on, it is simply used as an editing template, then people will realize how
easy it is to use this capabitity.
