Buck, this is an excellent point, and I suggest that anybody using trigger
programs (or exit points!) think about this carefully.  Especially during
initial development, you may want to wrap your triggers/exits in very simple
programs that simply call the REAL trigger/exit program.  This allows you to
change the real program without having to unregister/reregister it.  For
exit programs, this can be very important, becase you don't have to
end/restart the associated service to change the exit program.

Once you've thoroughly debugged your progrma, you may choose to relax this
architecture and remove the intervening layer, especially if performance
becomes an issue.
