I like it but before you start looking at the biger things, could you
perhpas proceed with the symtab?  It has much fewer classes, will
probably affect private development of fewer people, the accessor
macros/functions of symtab are less developed so it will immediately
really make code nicer, Honza has approved it and I'm really looking
forward to it.  Also, perhaps it will show us at much saller scale
potential problems with the general scheme.

I'm only writing this because the development there seems a bit
stalled and it it a shame.  Of course, you ay want to simplify the
manual markings first.  I'd perfectly understand that.
