As a side note - I think it would be cool if we used more specific  
names than "Backend" and "Frontened" in the actual code, since which  
end is front and back is not always obvious nor always agreed upon by  
all observers. I like Proxy and Impl ok as name pairs, not sure if  
that's the same relationship you have in mind.
