Hi Borislav.

It looks interesting and fulfills a purpose somewhat like that
of Steven's TypeErasure library:

Except it may be more dynamic. For example, the Mixin example here:

can add or remove methods at runtime; however, IIUC, the
TypeErasure library cannot. I'd guess then that the
TypeErasure method calls would be faster than those of
the Mixin methods calls.

Is that about right, Borislav or Steven, or am I missing something?
