Description _ rkubacki 2005-11-15 16:54:44 UTC
Current SPI for adding palette items requires new class for each item that
exists in palette. This is often followed by special class for customizer. This
is expensive pattern from performance point of view.

The alternative can be allowing of factory method in the XML declaration that
will return proper instance of ActiveEditorDrop. Another possibility is to
provide context (for example resource path in SFS) when calling constructor of
given object.
