Simple.  The sub-class which is adding them will define a 
class-scoped hash of its own per each added attribute, just as the 
main class did.  Moreover, the subclass doesn't even have to know 
what its parent class' attribute names were, and can define 
same-named ones without trouble. -- Darren Duncan
