The CornerGripMorph was a cause of the bug that resulted in me keeping an old email tagged as something to work on, so that needed to go. I'm not sure about the MCM* entries to be honest; after all the code intended to create the registry is very explicit about avoiding inherited messages. 

Is that mechanism the best one for building a registry? Explicitly cutting out inherited messages cuts both ways - making it that you don't add something just because it inherits from Object but also making it so that subclasses have to be explicitly fudged. Either way requires implementors to be fully aware of the issues, which in turn means that there needs to be some decent documentation of expectations in a place where one is likely to look.

I *think* that would be appropriate since it seems to be testing the registration.

Thanks for taking the time.
