They have been around longer than some people on this mailing list ;-)

true and false and some of the very few objects known to the VM and they 
where instantiated when the parent of all current images was created.
All images are basically cloned and not re-created from source, and 
that's why you don't see any initialization code for them, they just "are".

Hope this doesn't add to any confusion...
