Thanks, Oscar...and there it was, right in front of me all along.

"A trait is a collection of methods that can be included in the behaviour of
a class without the need for inheritance. This makes it easy for classes to
have a unique superclass, yet still share useful methods with otherwise
unrelated classes."

This may just be what I was looking for!

Thanks again,
