OK, thanks for the clarification. Perhaps this should be made even  
clearer: in that case it is not acting as a pattern. I mean:

Class Foo

Class Bar -superclass Foo
Class FuBar -superclass Foo

I hope that the following returns only one element:

Foo info subclass Bar

Is that correct?

I am using XOTcl 1.2 as that is what comes with OSX Leopard. As a  
general note, though, I think changes like this which cause backwards  
compatibility issues should cause the major version number to change,  
as per Tcl's normal package versioning scheme. Now my scripts will  
break when I upgrade XOTcl.
