Could you elaborate some more on this? I don't quite understand what you
When I think of added meaning related to inheritance, C++ comes to mind.
There it is used both as a means of code reuse and type extension, causing
designs to rely heavily (often unnecessarily) on inheritance.
Could you give some example about what type of added meaning you are
