I wonder whether it would make sense to have even non-sprite type objects to
have API (struct member) for object type and type specific object counts.
In addition to event triggers, this would help in debugging as gcstats and 
refcount asserts would pinpoint the problem better...

Message API in core objects would help in implementing generators and
triggers as plain objects instead of sprites.
