This is where you create a superclass. It doesn't need to even have much
in the way of data structure, maybe one string field "Goal: 'Made to fix
my older objects'". All it will take is inserting "inherits" into your
existing multiple classes, and restarting IDL. And that superclass will
have "spying" methods sharable by all your existing objects, with unique
names of course. Also, *only* this superclass will have "prune-reattach"
methods used by the older objects.

Now *that* is not IDL-related. I just start cutting hair shorter :-)
