the code for creating types is really confusing, lots of things call other things and it seems really arbitrary
does anybody have a good way of thinking about all the things that need to happen, what order, and how these things are abstracted in our code?

I don't think so, it's just confusing :(

it's gone through a bunch of iterations
and there's not a clear view of how it should be working
I'm hoping that as we muddle through it some more, we'll have a better idea of how it should be working

relatedly, I’m finding that I often have trouble predicting which file a particular function will be in
when it comes to types.cpp, objmodel.cpp, capi.cpp, capi/*.cpp

yeah, for sure, it's a bit random at the moment
