Could you give a more specific example?  My assumption is that if you need
to have things happen upon adding, that one uses a trigger to do it.  Or,
if the data is specific to that instance, then the appropriate thing would
be to manipulate properties or attributes in the code that calls newItem().

Also, it isn't necessary to subclass the specialist -- you don't have to
call your routine newItem(), after all.  newUser() would be a better choice
of name for the method, it sounds like.
