Ouch. When used in an automatic setup, this can be quite difficult to
handle, because we have to find all classes/types which use this

Or when the definition of a type changes the new type is not used
until the main object is loaded or accessed (main object = the one
containing the type).

however, I am not sure I understand what you mean by automatic setup?
