Implements C3 class linearization for TinyCLOS. For more information, see: http://www.webcom.com/~haahr/dylan/linearization-oopsla96.html and http://www.python.org/2.3/mro.html
The tinyclos egg.
When loaded, all subsequent class definitions obey C3 linearization. It's not possible to switch back to the default, once it is active.
