I am not sure how it is supposed to be used.  I couldn't find any
tests that actually tie it in to anything.

Are ClassEditor and MetaclassEditor supposed to replace Class and
Metaclass? It looks ot me like I would have to change the
MCPackageLoader to use ClassEditor and MetaclassEditor whenever it
currently uses Class and Metaclass.  Is that the idea?
