Yes, this would indeed be better. The super block must not know of its 
concrete children, but be able to call polymorphic matchers - true OO. Then 
I can remove the cyclic dep.


BTW: When I started to use blocks and especially using the inheritance 
feature, I was surprised that I manually had to include the 
forward-**-to-super-block matcher at the end of the child sitemap....
