A -T option for Subclasses?

if gene is a subclass of locus this means 
that some locus, say locus aaa
is subclassified as a gene

subclasses in ace are simply an automatic sorting system inside
a class

hence Locus aaa has the same name as Gene aaa, since there is a single object

Keyset show the native names
-Title is for tree displays

however, you may alias any object so that 2 names will be used

ace file is

-A Locus aaa bbb

now aaa and bbb will be recognized

unfortunately aliases do not properly dump
so this info should be keppt preciously !

from then on aaa and bbb will be recognized names

an alternative is to have a separate class gene, XREF to locus,
but this is probably less good
