[Grok-dev] A thought on the severe local utility problem

I have been thinking about this problem, too.

The main problem is that the local utilities can only be created 'at
run-time', and not 'at grok-time'.
So they are added in a IObjectAdded handler for you app.

I was thinking: wouldn't it be a good idea to has some sort of
'IServerStarted' event (or does this actually exist)? Then you could, each
time the server starts, check if all localutilities exist, and if they don't
create them. Of course, you then still have the problem of how to handle
object that are already in the database (for instance if you added a catalog
at a later time), but perhaps there's a straight-forward way of fixing that?
Just an idea...
