No trouble, it means that all interface features I'm implementing will probably
(multilpe inheritance, object properties, interface handlers) go there (if
accepted). It just means that I have more time to fit your needs

Easy fix, what do you need a compiler or runtime error? If I find time it may be
today, but surely until start of the next week (I will not have my notebook
where I'll reside, just public terminal). If I get it correctly, compiler error.

Ok, no flexibility (:Doing other features too, and I didn't test object to
object:) That was the reason for my try to ask questions "how would you like?"
(I think that I at least 4 times asked whom to talk about how to implement). Now
you finally said how. And patch will be corrected to fit constraints. 

It is not my project and the last thing I would like would be enforcing unwanted
boundaries (or the lack of it, it can still exist as my patch).
