Shared Variables in Monticello Package

As far as I know Monticello runs the class initialize methods on classes 
it loads, "IF" they have changed.

This means that new users of your package should have all the 
#initialize class methods run, and so that is where you can choose to 
initialise such things.

Updates to your packages will not touch the initialization process 
unless you change the method.
