I'm using nested ZClasses in KM|Net News. Take a look at the AddArticle
method. In KMNN, these ZClasses are set up as nested ZClasses, so that may
change things somewhat. However, it may still work. Rather than doing
manage_addProduct[], you *might* be able to just directly call
ZClass_add(_.None, _), because it could be in your acquisition path at the
top of the product. In KMNN, that's all I had to do, but in that case the
ZClass_add method was located within the ZClass that was to contain it.

That sounded kind of rambling, so I hope it makes sense...
