The AUTOLOAD approach has some caveats to be aware of:

1. It will be marginally slower because each call to the accessor will search the inheritance tree before calling AUTOLOAD

2. Querying the object with can will return a false result, which is probably not what users of the object would expect.

    Thanks Arunbear. I thought about this a bit more, and I almost feel I dabbled with AUTOLOAD quite some years ago, but found deficiencies that prevented me from using it. That said, I very well could be off my rocker and thinking about something else. I will give it a try though and see how it goes.
