Yea, this is actually pretty cool.

I wonder how the component manager knows which class to marshall to the 
requester?

If I dropped in an alternative implementation for say libgklayout, does 
it grap the class w/ the latest time stamp in order to override the 
original lib?

This is good stuff to know.
