I suppose... that might not be a bad idea; splitting the data store into
two sections, in (possibly) different modules: one that determines which
object in the data store the request refers to, and the other that
actually delivers it. Hmm.

Well, I'm not doing it intentionally, I promise. I like inheritence. 
Really. Nearly all the code I've written in the last year has been object
oriented code (C++, Java and Perl 5). I'm just not sure where
inheritence fits into this. Could you elucidate?

I seem to recall the proper language term for classes that have
inheritence without polymorphism as being 'object-based'. But that could
be wrong.
