Am I misunderstanding you here?  Your answer seems unnecessarily curt
and actually misses his question (the question marks he used to indicate
his point of confusion are at the MIRROR parameter).  Even if he had
been confused about the usage of the TARGET parameter he deserved a more
polite and helpful answer because, as you have just experienced,
sometimes one misunderstands, what has been written.  Maybe I am just to
sensitive, though.
