Its a nice tutorial, I wish I had something like this when I was 
starting to learn the class.ss module. About mixins why not use the 
given functionality of (mixin) of class.ss? I suppose its just a simple 
macro but why reinvent the wheel.

Also would you mind adding something on generic field accessors? I dont 
think it was completely obvious to me in the beginning why they were useful.
