[patch][cla][regression] dojox.form.manager._Mixin clobbers dijit._Widget "watch" function

Reported by: ben hockey Owned by: Eugene Lazutkin
Priority: high Milestone: 1.6
Component: DojoX Form Version: 1.5

in 1.6, dijit._Widget will introduce a watch function. the naming of this function causes an unfortunate clash with dojox.form.manager._Mixin which has a watch property.

to avoid this clash, i'm suggesting that dojox.form.manager._Mixin rename it's property. this change would not be backwards compatible but i would think that the name is not likely to be changed in dijit. any other options?

i think this change should be made before the release of 1.6 since the 2 classes are incompatible without this change. unless dijit changes the name of the property then it's inevitable that existing code using dojox.form.manager._Mixin will be broken in one way or another with the release of 1.6

i'm proposing that dojox.form.manager.* changes to use watching.

i've attached a patch which would change watch to watching in dojox.form.manager.*
