How about ".isA( type)" that would return true or false ?

I'm suggesting that because some object may be
*a Object
*a UGen
*a STKInstrument
*a Sitar

...all at the same time. So; "my_sitar" would return true for all those and

if ( my_sitar.isA( Event ) ) do.someThing();

...wouldn't work.

Does that make sense to you?
