I'm going to be completely evil and toss out method_load(), since that suite 
of whatever-they-are are effectively methods of a node object, just not using 
Class syntax.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
