Well, the best way to handle that, is to change all common commands to a
simple name.  Instead of msend, osend and wsend, make them all tsend
(trigger send)  That removes the chance of non-conforming commands.
Also, instead of having the trigger type as an integer, have it a
bitvector, that way you can define which targets it's legal for.  That
way you can have the checking and still have multiple target types :)
