invariants and xml
Class invariants are alternatives to private methods and members in simple cases. However, I do agree that in many cases having private members can be rendered irrelevant if class invariants are used. 
Where security is a primary concern I'd rather trust the use of private members and methods than class invariants though. Of course, my lack of experience with Eiffel may be the reason I tend to prefer Java/C#/C++ constructs. :)

	No, making something private is mainly a hack by languages that don't
	have class invariants. Visibility of features to clients comes secondary
