Ok, I'm breaking down here.  Should we add a 'user()' builtin?  This 
function would go alongside 'sender()' and 'caller()', it would be more 
appropriately called 'controller()'.  Since ColdC is developed for a 
multi-connection server environment it only makes sense that there would 
be a central object to control a single 'connection'.  How this builtin 
would work is there would be a controller variable which defaults to the 
connection starting the task, but allow the task to set a different 
controller as things go..

Do you prefer 'user()' or 'controller()'?
