i don't fear redondancy. some mapping objects can be the same as some
list-abs object.
having a mapping_clip that whould clip data acording to the mapping
standard is great, event if it's the same object as the list_clip 0 1.
i don't think it's a problem to have 2 objects with same fonctionality
with diferents name.

i think the mapping lib should have all necessary object for mapping.
the list-abs should have all necessary objects to deal with list.
and it's not a problem if sometimes the same objects have 2 diferents
name in both lib.
