Of course, then the trick is, is adding a trait to every attribute any better than adding a trigger to every attribute?  Perhaps you could get around that by doing something to the metaclass, or perhaps your attributes _already_ all have a trait that you can piggyback on (I wasn't quite clear on that part).

Thanks Buddy, I'll take a look a proper read-through of the thread and see
what I can do.  It certainly sounds useful.

As to your question, yes the attributes in question already consume the
trait(s) I want to expand.
