You may have noticed my silence on property sheets...  At first, I
didn't expect to use them, because I expected only members to edit
their "properties" and I'm certainly not going to expose the standard
Zope management interface to them.  After going through the latest PTK
sources some more, it looks like I may try using them after all.  In
either case, the important things to remember are:

- The actual property data isn't stored in the ZClass or its property
sheets, and the Skinscript code makes the ZClass "property" attributes
have values with or without property sheets, and

- The ZClass instances are ephemeral -- nothing is expected to store
them for any length of time (though they may be cached).

I think you'll have to delete the whole ZClass and start over :-(.
This shouldn't be too much of a pain because you shouldn't have any
instances to worry about.  If you've written custom methods, you'll
want to copy them someplace before deleting the class.

Hope this helps,
