Someone from the MOO community has a paper on what he calls 'parameterized
inheritance'.

http://theory.stanford.edu/~amitp/papers/mixins.ps is the paper.

His home pages are http://theory.stanford.edu/~amitp/ and
http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~amitp/  ... You may know of him already
from his game programming pages.
