So now I have an image which refers to source code through a  
reference object (an encoded integer right now) held in the  
properties. Seems to work so far.

I'll have to modify the above 'then remove about 60 methods for  
cleanup' a bit. I think it might be a couple of hundred methods.  
There's some real stinkers in there. Not to mention totally  
innappropriate dependence upon the idea of two files being the only  
source access method; makes me wonder how the compressed string  
source idea worked at all.
