I'd need to do the exact same thing as you, so if you come up with a
"better" (meaning more intuitive for the end-user) solution, I'd appreciate
if you posted it.

Also, I was wondering if there's a component writer around (I've never
really made any myself) who could maybe try making a combo that had, in
addition to the down-arrow a small "clear" button. I have a vague feeling
that I've seen something like that used in some program, but I can't
remember wether it felt "right" or not, so it would be cool to test it on
some poor unsuspectin user ;-)
