Actually, I think that was me.  The thread is titled "Interfaces  
without implementation are like a day without sunshine".  Eventually,  
Dave Herman convinced me that what I wanted was properly called  
`mixin`, not `trait`, and not `interface`.  The OpenLaszlo Compiler/ 
Framework supports `mixin` as a 'power tool' -- we acknowledge that  
they are dangerous if mis-used.
