I don't know of a standard way. Below is the way that I do it for a
couple of my projects (5.0). Note that I register my own types and use
Object.type() rather than the built-in type(). But the system below
doesn't require the registration of types - just change 'typefunc or
Object.type' to 'typefunc or type'. I usually use Object.types3()
because it results in shorter argument lists.
Wow, that seems like a lot of work. Has anyone done a library to make
any of this simpler?
