True. So what's it using now? In any case, if it's not using 
createObject it probably should (if feasible) just to standardise on 
that API.

Note that the add menu can make use of z3 add views now. I don't think 
there's an immediate need for wicked to do the same, but if it uses 
createObject, then we could make createObject support addviews as well 
in the future, again through a common interface.
