I got another query today from another mapper who decided that he would check 
out the latest and greatest gtk, and ranted about how much wasted time was 
spent working on a new entity he was coding and was thinking something was 
wrong. It so happened that every time he selected the ent to change it the 
editor kept the old one entity there and he never knew, since it was basically 
showing the new ent on top of the old one and he didn't expect it to work like 
that since no previous editor acted in this manner since pre 202.

I still think that this was one of the most usefull and requested features as 
far back as the original radiant, but that's my opinion based on my personal 
usage of the tools.

If it's not going to be added, something should be done to stop overlapping 
ents, or at least a popup (pre Q3Radiant 202 days) that says unable to change 
class or unable to change the current selected entity. Alot of people still use 
the original Radiants and as the publicity spreads its just one 
more 'frustration' that will crop up.

As it is, after copying/rotating team bases on ctf maps, its much more time to 
delete and recreate and reposition ents when all it takes is firing up one of 
the other radiants and just right click each one to change it's
