Ryan, your Object.inherit() implementation looks great, but I couldn't
use it for my needs.
I want to internally extend my own object, like adding a plugin, and
refer also to the current implementation of the object.
You're not able to use Object.inherit(this,this);

var A = Class.create();
   addPlugin: function(pluginObj) {
      var $parent = Object.clone(this);
   show: function() {
      alert("I am A");
   show: function() {
      alert("I am EXTENDED A");

Actually, even my example does not work (I checked it before a bit
differently and I thought it works).
How can this addPlugin can be implemented?

-thanks, Eli
