If I must accept 'impacted' as an adjective for things other than stool and molars, you must accept 'proxy' as a verb.

What's funny is that the relative merits of transitive and intransitive verbs is being queried whilst the word "with" makes it to the top of a list of verbs without comment.

A quick search of a few US and UK dictionaries all list delegate as both a noun and a verb. I prefer delegate as I think proxy, although correct in the presented context, seems to be more commonly used in distributed system patterns. Delegate, on the other hand, seems heavily biased in pattern language speak, toward the example.

I tried this in scala 2.8.0 REPL...
<pre class="literal-block">
trait A {
def foo() = println("a.foo")
def bar() = println("a.bar")
def baz() = println("a.baz")
}

class B {
def bar() = println("b.bar")
}

val b = new B with A
</pre>

Got an error because B's bar does not have an 'override' clause. Maybe it's just the REPL -- I'm still learning scala -- but this worked for me...
<pre class="literal-block">
trait A {
def foo() = println("a.foo")
def bar() = println("a.bar")
def baz() = println("a.baz")
}

val b = new B with A {
override bar() = println("b.bar")
}
</pre>
