Hmm. So I need to refactor the 'manage_add' method inside
the python product into two methods, 'manage_add' which
would be used by the 'normal' object creation process and
that would also call a second 'setup' method which could be
called by the specialists 'myadd' method directly, bypassing
the 'manage_add' method entirely.

Is that correct?

Is there anything else I would need to change?
