yep, and I'm afraid I haven't listened enough to the need you want to 
address, the more I think about the class-new stuff the more I end up 
thinking about some central catalog

There should be a central catalog, but I think we also need to be able
to have classes that are local to a form.  Now that the local case has
been implemented someone can extend "new" to also be able to reference
a central catalog.

BTW, I was thinking about allowing multiple catalogs and using "import"
to reference in the relevant catalogs or specific classes from certain
catalogs, similar to how import works in java source code.  WDYT?

[Note this would also be similar to import/include in XSLT.]

a catalog where all the 'classes' are

and then have the new look those up from there, they should then have a 
logical-name, and should get a specific id in the new definition...

still thinking though
