Coming alive again.  In a previous email I told you about three mechanisms
to configure shortcuts:

- static shortcuts (per class)
- dynamic category shortcuts ( you build a category and attach it to an
- single shortcuts per instance

The thing is that you can mix the three above, having the three working
together.  The lookup mechanism in a morph is:

- first single shortcuts
- second dynamic category shortcuts
- finally static shortcuts

So, you can put a base static configuration and override stuff with dynamic
shortcuts.  But to be sincere, I've never tried a complex configuration
like that :)

Is that useful for you?
