      The way I do it in most of my homebrew sets (since most of mine were
      written before SOURCEDATE, that I only recently started adding to my
      sets):

      <new file>
      # CVS comment line from prettylst
      SOURCExxx info line
      # My standard comment that I put in my homebrew files

      <object I want to replace>.FORGET

      <my new object that will replace the .FORGET>

      <end of file>

      What I normally do is have a new object anyway, with an OUTPUTNAME: to
      the original. I do that mainly so I can keep it straight in my head,
      since I do updates to the Core files for PCGen volunteer work. The
      fact that I do that may make the difference in if .FORGET will work
      like I described above.

      I hope that helps.
