Yes, there was a misunderstanding :-).
I was searching for something containing the list of classes to be 
rendered, but now I've understood that I should collect informations 
about classes as long as I generate the code, that is the way gensqueak 
works (I was looking at your sources just now).

Thanks a lot for your help, I'm sorry if I make you bored with my many 
questions, I hope they will decrease as soon as I will get acquainted 
with pypy's logic.

ciao Anto
