        Stop! Stop! My brain is bleeding!

        I think you mean you want to be able to do what others call
'restringing'.  That's cool.  Remember though, if you alter the
desc/alias/etc not to alter the prototype.  Don't forget either, to free
the memory on altered objects when you quit (you don't have to free
strings for objs normally - they're just pointers to the prototype).

        Oh, and if you want to save, you'll have to add that information
into the obj_file_elem ... or whatever the struct is called.

        You can also check out xapobjs & iedit.  I really will make a
brand new patch for that one of these days, but it's nearly functional
now, so I barely see the point :)
