Sure and don't forget you should use the method to indicate where in  
the StartUpList: you want your class to start up. There is a method to
indicate which class you should be before, or is that after?   We know  
this by heart because we got burned with it in Sophie early on. Yes we  
want to start the FreeType/Rome subsystem *before* Morphic starts....

Otherwise your Class startup gets added somewhere in the sequential  
starutp  list, maybe not where you expect.
