LPC does have multiple parents - The 'inherit' statement allows you to
inherit as many parents as you want.  If two or more parents have the same
function declared, though, you'll need to assign an identifier to each
parent (i.e. inherit <identifier> <object path>), and refer to the
identifer when you call the function.
My LPC knowledge is limited to DGD's implementation of the language,
though...If you're not using DGD's LPC (i.e. you're not using LPMOO), then
this may not be true for you.
