My question is this: in implementing support for [pattrstorage], I really only need to support "setvalueof" functionality, and don’t need (from my point of view) "getvalueof" or "notifyclients." From my perspective, I’m using [pattrstorage] to push data to my object, so it’s a "write-only" kind of process. I can’t see why [pattrstorage] would need to get information back from my object.
So is there any reason I’m missing in deciding not to implement "getvalueof" and "notifyclients" functions in my object?
Well, to provisionally answer my own question, now supporting only "setvalueof": seems as thought there’s nothing wrong with doing this. Still wouldn’t mind some amplification from a knowledgeable person, or just a nod that all is good.
