Well, the #changeClassToThatOf: method does essentially the same, but it
can easily ensure that the class layout is the same, so it's much safer to
use (and so could eventually make it into the base image). And even then,
the weird selector is much more appropriate than SP's innocious looking
but highly dangerous selector #class:.
