Structure Inheritance

I know the DEV team has a lot on their plate right now, but what about the possibility of a structure inheritance.

contract A{
struct Automobile{}
struct Car is Automobile{}

    I see it being feasible on the back-end but I cant tell, given the nature of Solidity, if its in the best interests of the language architecture. Anyways, seems like it would be useful regardless.

    Just discovered this example:
    contract InfoFeed {
      function info() returns (uint ret) { return 42; }
    contract Consumer {
      InfoFeed feed;
      function setFeed(address addr) { feed = InfoFeed(addr); }
      function callFeed() {; }
    So I now have no need for structure inheritance. Love solidity. Cheers.

    I've updated your last post to demo the 'code' formatting (you can find it in the WYSIWYG editor of the forum, the icon between unordered list and smiley).

    @SilentCicero Yes, it does the job - but the example you provided is more of an "Has-A" characteristic and not a n "Is-A", which is a real inheritance.
