returns the String name of the composite from which the composite containing note item was instantiated.

For example, if a composite was created from the built-in 'list' composite, this function will return "list". The query:

$MyString = compositeFor(this):kind=="book"; 

would locate all notes that participate in composites instantiated from "book" – all books.

This code can also use the 'my' designator to give a shorter form. These are functional equivalents:

$MyString = compositeFor(this):kind; 

$MyString = my:kind;
