This use of behaviours is more or less the same as interfaces are used in other

Just a thought that might open the can of snakes/worms/dragons : I think there
is a difference in semantics for the two usages, maybe it would be appropriate
to use different keywords? And also allow for more elaborate handling of
"interfaces", like extending them or resolving name clashes.
