Ah, now I understand. You wanted to say that classes in x_list.c hide 
behind a creator (class_addcreator) which acts as a namespace which is not 
the kind of namespace that you are pushing, but which is nonetheless the 
kind of namespace that Miller is pushing, by the very fact that Miller 
added this system very recently. The fact that it has its own namespace 
makes you want to call it a library in your terminology, despite the fact 
that Miller doesn't call it a library. Right?
