the sheets to already exist, you'll need to either create a custom
SheetProvider in Python, or you'll need to use a GenericTrigger to add them
when objects are added (which won't help you when you want to add a new
sheet after the fact).

Now, if you're designing a new project, as Steve A. was, then of course you
can set things up cleanly from the start.  Globally adding sheets at a
later point currently requires a custom provider, but should be doable with
a later version of ZPatterns just by writing the SkinScript for the new
