:-)  Actually I did see that discussion and was trying to think of ways around

Sure, but Fast Enough (tm).  If you're calling slots by name in performance 
critical code you should probably have mean things done to you anyway.  :-)

In this case, doing this for just one object at a time seems rather practical.  

Oh, and by the way I committed this a couple hours ago, with docs soon to come 
(mostly done with them now).
