Peder, you *can* do what you want to do and in the way you want it to do.
Please, re-read previous post.

For clarity, repeated below this is how you do it now

std:;bitset<8> allbits = p.GetClassification();
You get *all* eight bits of classification flags, not only first 5
bits of index in classification
table (we call it class index for clarity).

There is no need for clunky GetRawClassification, the current
interface allows you to do what you want.

Though, the bug in misuse of GetClass() still has to be fixed.
