> Ok, so I've got a property (I guess that's the proper term to use?) that I'd like to be able to use with any AA declared as Variant[char]. For example, I'd like to be able to do the following.
> Variant[char] map;
> ubyte stream;
> stream = map.serialize;
> map.deserialize( stream );
> int [int] map2;
> stream = map.serialize; //invalid, int [int] does not have serialize property.

just write the function as ubyte serialize(Variant[char] input) and
call it as:
map.serialize(); // Note, the trailing pair of empty parentheses
