Some issues I have come accoross:
- If a cagetory is selected and you have the same category of on the
class side then switching to the class side does not update the
- Switching to the class side of a trait displays the instance side of Trait.
- Does italic for a class mean class extension? If so, shouldn't a
sublcass with class extensions also be italic? Like for example when a
package has a class extension in String and ByteString.
