An object is an instance of an intersection class if it is an instance of all of its participants.
INTERSECTION:


define-intersection-class ( class participants -- )


Intersection classes can be introspected:
class-participants ( class -- seq )


The set of intersection classes is a class:
intersection-class

intersection-class? ( object -- ? )


Intersection classes are used to associate a method with objects which are simultaneously instances of multiple different classes, as well as to conveniently define predicates.
