more things lost....

   The initTimexx parser no longer handles creation of global variables
   (I believe it used to).

   Also, some transfomration I did from Smaltlalk initialize methods to
   initTimeNonInherited methods went away.


Eric Hill's init package changed the semantics. Global variables
should be initialized to compile time constants in linkTimeXXX
methods. Init time methods are used to do anything more complicated at
run time. If this initialization requires some other initialization to
be done, put self REQUIRES: class at the beginning of the method.
