If you select a change set file in the FileList you can select to browse changes
and browse code from the yellow button menu. Both these mechanisms scans
the code before
it's loaded and could be used to notify that the class you are about to file
 into is missing.

most stuff like this is in the update stream so issuing a question if 
you want to update beyond the current change set with all the test pilot 
risks could be useful.
