Not serious, no - that overloading is too repulsive for me to be serious about. But also not joking. Wondering why I couldn't dismiss the idea. It seemed ridiculous, but also...

Consider this question: If a client wishes to "manage sieve", does it sound out-of-scope to monitor what the sieve implementation is doing?

You see what I mean. Repulsive overloading, but I can't quite dismiss it.
