Warning STklos feature: function redefination

The problem is when klos generic redefines a previously defined fuction.

The first time was when I declared a generic function "update"

The second time was when I declared a slot/accessor "text"

In both cases the new generic function wipes out the old function.
Now any code that depends on the old functions is broke, which is
especially true of TK libraries which make extensive use of regular
The only saving grace is that the graphical debugger breaks and if I
was paying attention I could have seen the culprit in the stack dump.

Is there a package mechanism for STk?
