yeh - i see what you've done now. any subclass which accesses the rules 
field directly will be broken - but it has an easy workaround (us an 
accessor) and i'm happy to live with that.

i'm pretty happy with the way that this is heading but maybe it'd be 
easier for more people to review these changes and suggest improvements if 
we had them in cvs. maybe a branch is the right way to go forward. (we can 
merge back once everyone's happy with the changes.)
