well, if one is comfortable with the schedulers he can just

I think the usefulness of 'invisible' classes is more when adding

support in the geom nodes themselves.
In any case I was hoping to discuss this issue later,
either at bsdcan or in the mailing list, once I understand
the implications a bit more.
