So I ported them all. I also enabled Magnifier again after fixing what
was to be fixed.

Spencer, do you think we need some uniformity in the export policy of
layouts? When porting xmc to the class system with David we decided
not to export type constructors when possible. Still I don't know if
we must be strict or allow exceptions. Or not to enforce any policy at
all, which I think could be fine in a library of contributed code. 

But I wonder if the mix may be confusing for the user, when editing
the layout hook.
