(* [Libobject] declares persistent objects, given with methods:

   * a caching function specifying how to add the object in the current
     scope;
     If the object wishes to register its visibility in the Nametab, 
     it should do so for all possible sufixes.

   * a loading function, specifying what to do when the module 
     containing the object is loaded; 
     If the object wishes to register its visibility in the Nametab, 
     it should do so for all sufixes no shorter then the "int" argument

   * an opening function, specifying what to do when the module 
     containing the object is opened (imported);
     If the object wishes to register its visibility in the Nametab, 
     it should do so for the sufix of the length the "int" argument

   * a classification function, specyfying what to do with the object,
     when the current module (containing the object) is ended;
     The possibilities are:
     Dispose   - the object dies at the end of the module
     Substitue - meaning the object is substitutive and 
                 the module name must be updated
     Keep      - the object is not substitutive, but survives module 
                 closing
     Anticipate - this is for objects which have to be explicitely 
                 managed by the [end_module] function (like Require 
                 and Read markers)

     The classification function is also an occasion for a cleanup
     (if this function returns Keep or Substitute of some object, the 
     cache method is never called for it)

   * a substitution function, performing the substitution; 
     this function should be declared for substitutive objects 
     only (see obove)

   * a discharge function, that is applied at section closing time to
     collect the data necessary to rebuild the discharged form of the
     non volatile objects

   * a rebuild function, that is applied after section closing to
     rebuild the non volatile content of a section from the data
     collected by the discharge function

   * an export function, to enable optional writing of its contents 
     to disk (.vo). This function is also the oportunity to remove 
     redundant information in order to keep .vo size small 

     The export function is a little obsolete and will be removed 
     in the near future...

(* The default object is a "Keep" object with empty methods. 
   Object creators are advised to use the construction
   [{(default_object "MY_OBJECT") with
      cache_function = ...
   }]
   and specify only these functions which are not empty/meaningless
