I know of no way to do this. What are you trying to accomplish?

I suppose you could do it at load time, but personally I'd want to be *really* sure that's what I wanted to do before embarking down that path: there be dragons.

At runtime? That doesn't sound at all easy. Maybe impossible. And I agree with David Newton's "there be dragons."

What is your motivation for this rather bizarre requirement?
