hi

i'm trying to understand the new class model and the new way to extend objects and stuff.
works all fine but there is one question i don't find any anwers in the frum or on the net:

what's the reason for using
Code:
var me = this;
me.functionName();
nearly everywhere instead of just using
Code:
this.functionName();
?

i mean is it just for the opportunity of closures? or is there any other reason?

should i do it the same way in my code?

thx for any hints.
