yes yes PROXY. that's the ticket. i didn't realize that's what i'm
doing. and it acutally gives me an idea. i was looking at how ruby
creates objects and uses a proxy for mixins. wouldn't it be fantastic if
ruby supported networked-proxy objects interinsicly? think i'll suggest
it to matz.

Sounds like a typical proxy-based remote object system (minus
distributed garbage collection, of course). This kind of thing is
pretty standard in Smalltalk, where we have #doesNotUnderstand:
instead of methodMissing().
