Obviously I don't have all the data at my disposal, but I don't get it (some 
help would be nice) ! Why the developpement of a new file format (.cld) for 
what, at first impression, looks to me like normal class definitions, with the 
addition of "triggers" (like database triggers ?) hereby called "business 
objects". Couldn't those fit just as well in normal .py files ?
 - Just some early feedback.
