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.
