Interesting. I don't understand why it is doing anything with Traits. Alex, you might want

Gordon, this is what I meant (what Alex said), sorry for getting terminology mixed up here
but the fact I am having trouble understanding it is because of the ABC block stuff. I just
don't know enough to grasp the mechanics of the traversals.

I just want to understand what is going on and it's the
addInstruction() stuff etc that seems to require some knowledge of ABC.
