I know ;)
Truth is I am unable to find instructions on how to do several things
and thus I resort to experimenting.
Sometimes the experiments get a little wild ;)

I am still more than a little confused abiut exactly which service I
should use to get the right "piece" (Mpart, MPerspective or whatever).
I hoped there's a unified interface using the id's, but that doesn't

I debugged and found out that's the actual type returned.
I should have used the Interface, instead.

What is the magic spell to get the Command already linked with the menu,
instead of creating a new one?
Use EModelService, I presume, but how do I add the parameter?
Can You suggest some specific documentation?
I am mainly using Lars's excellent site, but even that is rather terse
on many subjects.
Wiki seems to be lagging way behind, or I'm unable to navigate it properly.
Thanks for Your time
