[self-interest] Filing Out A Composite Morph?

There is a passage about this in the manual. http://docs.selflanguage.org/morphic.html
6.4. Saving a Composite Morph
The System for filling out morphs seems pretty raw around the edges and really needs to be improved if we want to create usefull apps.

Hope this helps,
cheers Jan

I can fix this by manually setting the irc morph's copy-down attributes (they don't seem to copy over as part of the file-in/out process) but then the original submorphs don't exist.
