  "Instantiate" is not really the correct word, but anyways, the point is
that you would want unions (and maybe other objects) to behave like meshes
in that making several instances of the same object only creates references
to the original, rather than copies.

  This gave me a feature idea, which I submitted to the developers for
rumination.
