Not at all. In the current system the and archive can be written by one program
and read by any number of others. It was has not been necessary to refer to any
globally known id to accomplish this.The ONLY requirement is that all the programs
have the same definitions for all the class objects in the archives. This is not
an unreasonable requirement for program that are destined to share archives.
