What kind of operations can a StatMod do? Just addition and multiplication? Or is it more of an "arbitrary function" sort of thing with an input and an output?

So if you have two entities with the same speed, the one that's first alphabetically gets to go first? That just seems... wrong... Maybe just pick one at random instead?

You can think of mixins as inheriting just the functionality you want -- a mixin is an "incomplete class" that can't stand on its own.
I've heard of mixins before - I thought they were more along the lines of mixing code in several different languages to accomplish a task, though? What you describe sounds more like interfaces in C# and Java, except that (perhaps) you can combine two or more mixins to get the full functionality of a class, without actually having to inherit from said class in whatever is implementing the mixins...
