(a) You can append "Base" to the name.  I myself strongly dislike this
    "feature"; it keeps tripping people up and it doesn't seem to be
    mentioned anywhere.  But it's one way to get your class ignored.

(b) You can say "grok.baseclass()" inside the class definition and it
    will, if I'm thinking straight, be ignored.  I like this.
