Thanks for reminding me of how to do that properly. One thing I have 
noticed, however, is that different classes seem to evoke different 
behaviors from the same browser. One obvious example is that after doing 
the above Installer script, the browsing PRDistribution in package 
Pier-Setup, evokes a pane menu for methods. Likewise with its sub-class, 

HOWEVER, with PRBookDistribution, which is another sub-class of 
PRDIstribution, the browser does NOT provide a pane menu for methods. 
There's no doubt some reason why this happens but it is somewhat odd 
since the same pop-down menu is available for each method in the method 
pane, regardless of which class is being browsed...
