I gotta say I find subclassing just to inherit convenient
functionality quite evil.  I'd prefer to use a view lookup or some
random utility method.  Of course this is just my particular  taste --
also being burned a few times with people saying, "oh, I need feature
X, I'll just inherit from X's mixin class".
