practical.. i agree its better to avoid it, but i was wondering if the 
behaviour is predictable when it happens. if you have i.e.

class1 = class_new(gensym("object"), ...
class2 = class_new(gensym("object"), ...

which class gets instantiated if you create [object] in pd?

first, second or undefined?
