Sorry if you've got the feeling that I desregard your practical experience. This 
isn't my intention at all. I'm just curious to see what the difference between 
multiple block inheritance and single block inheritance + composition, or in 
other words, what the difference between yours and Stefano's solution looks like 
in a *practical* example (I heard that *you* have practical experiences but I 
want to learn a bit from them). I read several pros and cons for both solutions 
but it's difficult for me to imagine how both solutions "feel" for me and which 
one I like more.

Usually when I have such a problem I start to draw interface diagrams and write 
some mocks implementating them. I will do the same here - of course this will 
not be the super-example portal/portlet-integration ;-)
