That's the clean way to do it, and I would if I were in control of the 
handshaking, but because Ctools is doing the handling of the link click 
and the construction of the AJAX handshaking, I can't just package it up 
and send it...I need to find the right 'box and forms' to get it to 
accept, carry and deliver my package for me.
