Fair enough ... and in the end, my original suggested use of a
subclass wasn't really intended to augment the Portal interface
behavior, but rather produce a single object satisfying both the
Portal and IPBRoot interfaces.  Given the application (and that those
interfaces aren't really related aspects of anything), that desire
seems to fit more cleanly with composition than inheritance anyway.
