I'm in two minds about this one.

Yes, it looks horrible (to be fair, I hate anything that has more than 3
or 4 parameters, because I can never remember what they're for).

On the other hand, it gives you a nice check-point in your code, with
all the bits you need to set, or at least consider. Because it depends
on so many things that you may have to construct/obtain, you quickly
realize that there is not that many locations in your stack that fits
these requirements. Yes, this a twisted reasoning.

Thanks,

M.
