The REAL trick is to get the "CodeFactory" selectors/matchers to work in an
interpretted environment.  We may have to remove the notion of "CodeFactory"
and use real components for Selectors/Matchers.  Hopefully this can be done
without breaking sitemap markup (I think it can).

This really needs to be done sooner than later.

It's actually a quote from the Preamble to the Consitution of the US. ;)
