Ok, now i use two methods, one "handmade" with code and one for scripting,
which calls the handmade (cheap to restore ;).

hmm, i hoped there is an easy way to expose handmades to
something like an description array for a class with the
and the substitution-code.
Starting with scripting and then learning how to make own tiles by code
is kind of a meta-toy :)  
Also, have etoys inheritance? So one could split the car-control in
and turning and then keep speed-script but override turn-script?
