Yes, I'm aware of them, but they do not do what I mean. I want to
create an object as a child of an already existing object which != [self].
"new" creates a new object, but not as an aggregate of another object,
"newChild" creates a new object as the child of the calling object. These
are very convenient and I use both a lot, but the method I proposed is
for easily aggregating a new object to anything.
