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...
