I'm not sure whether this use case is very common, but it might be one. 
It'd be interesting to come up with some real world scenarios where this 
requirement comes up.

True, I hadn't thought of the use case you mentioned, but using an 
interface would fix this.

Anyway, I'm still don't think we should be in a rush to get this fixed, 
but grokking based on interface should be a feature for the longer term 
todo list in Martian, and it shouldn't be too hard to implement as far 
as I can determine.
