I think "no, no, no". Two reasons: 1) the extension of the splObjs 
implies a hardcoded contract with the VM; having it externally settable 
makes it look as if one could just stick in stuff for fun. 2) The 
recreation of the splObjs implies specific knowledge about which values 
should be added and which values should be removed.

In any case, there are only two packages that have ever made mods to the 
splObjs array (FFI and Alien) for *very* specialized reasons. We should 
just add these definitions manually and remove the patch from the Alien
