Then let me suggest ectomorphic classes, as opposed to the previous
endomorphic classes. Roll-your-own classes can be called mesomorphic
classes. Extension classes can be called paleomorphic classes. Then
there's a precise term for each kind, and bystanders are automically
informed by the very terminology used that their lives are too short to
worry about the distinctions being drawn <wink>.
