    Only took a very brief look, but it looks nice. I like that the DTO class isn't required to extend anything, and that it seems to be for real DTOs used for actual transfer of data between systems - not 'local dtos'. It feels like this might be more comparable to something like schmittjoh/serializer rather than spatie/data-transfer-object.
