Hi Mark,

I noticed that the responses so far tried to define the
relationship between the objects. One person mentioned
inheritance, which is the first thing I thought of.

Then I thought more about the original action and the
resulting actions and wondered if you could somehow
use the verb "cascade," as in cascade deletion, when
you delete a parent object in a database and all the
child objects get deleted as a result.

Just a thought,
