Hi Troy.

Yes, I understand.
Objective-C++ fully understands C++, so subclassing is not an issue.
But this subclass would be separated from the UI logic (MVC) and  
somewhat more complicated altogether.
If I need a subclass anyway, I could add the field and the setter to  
get the same behaviour as before actually.
