the class variable should hold the one single instance of the class, and
not anything else.
The instance is the one that holds on to a list of objects of interest
(plus methods for adding and removing). I understood Göran's proposal to
use the class not for creating instances at all, but use it only to
provide slots for various data.
I also believe that Göran would have used the term Singleton explicitly,
if that was what he meant. ;-)
