Hmm, how unusual: a thread that strays from the topic with which it was
started :-)

I suppose I should have changed the Subject line; sorry.

Actually I believe that Eiffel does not have the problem that I alluded to.
If I remember correctly, I think that you have to explicitly mark a routine
that overrides one that otherwise would be implicitly inherited.
