Hmm, if the instance held a list of all valid attributes, then you would not need to search all attributes for all classes.

    True, but this list is impossible to determine at compile time since you can change an objects class with bless at any time.

    In theory you could replace bless with a custom version that tracked the object through it's class changes - but this is really just an optimisation - and it's a little early in the day for that :-)
