    -- some global constants
    nn:NNI := #IVar
    mm:NNI := #DVar
    nameX:V Sy := new(nn, first IVar)
    nameU:V Sy := new(mm, first DVar)
    for i in 2..nn repeat
    for i in repeat

I think this code is ok. The purpose, I think is that the variables
'nameX' and 'nameU' become part of the representation (private data)
of each instance (member) of the JetBundle domain. Although the way
this is written seems a little awkward to me - I would have used
'construct' from 'Vector Symbol'.

I don't think this should be affected by the order in which the
library modules are listed.
