Right now, you can do the following with a Model object:
//attribute related
##attribute related
*hasA -- creates an encapsulated attribute
*hasAn -- syntactic sugar for hasA
*hasMany -- creates an encapsulated list of encapsulated attributes
*attributes -- returns an array of attribute names as strings
*attribute -- returns the specified Attr or AttrList object
*parent -- returns the constructor of the parent, if one exists
//method related
## method related
*respondsTo -- creates a method
*methods -- returns an array of method names as string
*method -- returns the specified Method object
//constructor related
## constructor related
*isBuiltWith -- accepts a series of strings that should be attributes, those prepended with '%' are optional in the constructor
-- also accepts an initializer as the final argument
## modifier
*isImmutable -- makes the object immutable and forces all attributes to be required in an isBuiltWith call
## inheritance
*isA -- inherits from the specified model
*isAn -- syntactic sugar for isA
Attr and AttrList objects respond to the following methods:
*validatesWith -- accepts a function that returns true if the parameter is valid for the attribute
*defaultsTo -- accepts a default value for the attribute (not currently available for AttrList)
*isImmutable -- makes it so the attribute cannot be changed once it is set
