Add them in. I think PHP has a pretty good approach to these, but it'd be worth looking at how other languages do them. I think Ruby seems to have messed it up though, as there's a lot more effort in using them than their ought to be.

I think mixins and duck typing is more of an anti-pattern than a real design pattern. I don't like this. Duck typing is the new spaghetti. Let's not invite people to code this way.

I think a bold statement like "I think mixins and duck typing is more of an anti-pattern than a real design pattern." needs slightly more qualification than simply stating it as if it in and of itself makes its point. Otherwise you're not really putting any sort of case forward. (I'm not married to the suggestion one way or the other, I just think your dissenting voice is somewhat empty as it stands)
