Another Reminder – SharePoint is COPY BY VALUE

I'm doing a lot of code gen in SharePoint and something that was driving me crazy was auto gen of content types, list templates, and lists from a database.  The List instance would use the list template which would in turn use a ContentTypeRef.  Everything worked fine, exept when I go to enter a new item…no columns!  Doh!  Hate the Copy By Value default of SharePoint…a nice reminder blog post is here:
