    // more nearer the class is to the root (WebBaseEvent), in a class inheritance sense.
    // On the other hand, if x > y, it means x is NOT a parent class of y.
    // The array is sorted in this way so that if we want to find out the config setting of
    // an event class x, we start searching in a decreasing order, and the first entry (E)
    // that satifies the test: if (x is E), then we find the right settings for x.
    // BTW, this is just a trick to save me from writing too much code.  A n-node tree
    // method is faster, but I was too lazy.
