The Devil's Cauldron does something like this for the distribution of
Event counters. The position where the event counters will be placed on
the map are all marked with a special marker that can be identified
(Property Type=Event). The actual event counters are stored in a Deck.
The 'Deal Event Markers' button sends a Global Key Command to the
specified number of units in the Deck. The GKC activates a Send to
Location command in the Event markers to go to the location of a counter
matching properties (Type=Event). On arrival, (Key applied to counters
arriving on map) the real Event marker cleans up by deleting the Event
place holder at it's location (Global key command, range=0, Type=Event,
Command = delete).
