    #
    # _BacnetSlavePlug       - contains the model (i.e. configuration parameters)
    # BacnetSlaveEditorPlug  - contains the viewer (and editor, so it includes the 'controller' part of the
    #                                    design pattern which in this case is not separated from the viewer)
    #
    # The _BacnetSlavePlug      object is 'permanent', i.e. it exists as long as the beremiz project is open
    # The BacnetSlaveEditorPlug object is 'transient', i.e. it exists only while the editor is visible/open
    #                                                         in the editing panel. It is destoryed whenever
    #                                                         the user closes the corresponding tab in the
    #                                                         editing panel, and a new object is created when
    #                                                         the editor is re-opened.
    #
    # _BacnetSlavePlug contains:  AV_ObjTable, ...
    #                             (these are the objects that actually store the config parameters or 'model'
    #                              and are therefore stored to a file)

    #    xx_ObjTable  -> ObjectTable -> CustomTable -> wx.grid.PyGridTableBase)

    #  data that is displayed and edited in the Grid.
