Well, one thing which you could do is to use the scout's honor
protocol: define all of your private methods or protected methods
according to some naming convention, say, beginning with 'p' followed
by two underbars (p__) for private methods.
Then, use an 'honor lock'; only call such functions from authorized
locii such as own classes for private methods or derived classes
for protected functions and so forth...
