Yes, it is the case. This shows you that the actual class is an 
implementation detail, and what matters is the creator (constructor), 
because that is what is put in [objectmaker]'s method-table (which is 
actually a creator-table).

This is actually 3 distinct classes, but it's also an implementation 

In another strange way, GridFlow C++ classes have *all* the same creator 
from the perspective of Pd, but this mostly just dispatches to a 
class-specific creator. Same goes for GEM and PyExt and most interfaces 
between the C Pd API and another language.
