in thread Better Inside-Out Objects :)

$o->bar( 99 ); is $o->bar, 99, "can set and get value of Bar's secret"; is $o->foo, 99, "secrets of subclasses are shared";
can you explain the intent there? why should setting bar also change foo?

    foo and bar aren't properties. They're both alias accessors to a single, private property called secret.
