Joel,

UML itself has not been regenerated to be extensible, so trying to take
advantage of this won't really help. I wonder if they will consider
doing so?

It seems I got the guard on the extension point completely backwards.
:-( I don't know how that slipped through. I guess because the
plugin.xml isn't regenerated. Please open a bugzilla so I can fix it
for next week's build.

Note that you have to enable this support via options on the
GenPackage. The base needs to be extensible and the derived needs to be
an extender...
