Bonus:  no inheritance required.  If I have to deal with one more
module which forces me to inherit just because the author thought it
was a good idea, I'm going to go insane.

So, let's say I need a factory class, with class data, don't want to
worry about missing methods and want handy method generation.

Where's the bug?
