#' Private class
#' 
#' This is a virtual class to be contained in other class definitions. It overrides the default subset functions \code{$} and \code{[[} such that private member of a class can not be accessed. Private is every object which has a name with a leading "." (\code{grepl("^\\\\.", name)}). After this check the standard method for class 'envRefClass' is called or an error is reported.
