Nice. Do you also have recommendations for keeping everything as neat and tidy while adding persistence? I've managed a few simple cases with Storable hooks, but dependencies on the ancestor class beyond just its api seem to be rearing their heads again :-(

    It shouldn't be too hard to write save and restore functions that dump the appropriate values of the hashes.

    And it's real easy to make class level save and restore functions that save/restore *all* the instances of a class.

    However, to do this right, you do need to cooperation of the classes you inherit....
