Extend your own Constructors

var Fruit = S.extend({
  options : {
    // by default the fruit is Tasty
    isTasty : true,
    //and no one owns it
    owner : null
  },

  // i like to taste any fruit
  taste : function() {
    console.log("I like to taste a fruit");
  },

  dump : function() {
    return {
      objectType :  "a fruit"
    }
  }
});

var Banana = Fruit.extend({
  // by default the banana is owned by a banana eater and is yellow
  "+options" : {
    owner : "banana eater",
    color : "yellow"
  },

  // but the taste of the banana depends if it tasty
  "+taste" : function() {
    console.log(this.isTasty ? "GREAT!" : "beurk!");
  },

  "+dump" : function() {
    return {
      color : this.color
    }
  }
});

Instanciate them

var oldBanana = new Banana({
  isTasty : false,
  color : "black",
  owner : "me"
});

// options are set as attributes in the instance
oldBanana.isTasty 
//=> false

// +taste in Banana is executed after taste in Fruit
oldBanana.taste();
// I like to test fruits
// beurk!

var favoriteBanana = new r.Banana();

favoriteBanana.taste(); 
// I like to test fruits
// GREAT!

favoriteBanana.dump();
//=> { color : "yellow", objectType : "a fruit"}
