    A good starting point is the note in MacroImplicits.scala in upickle sources. "derives Writer" for a specific case class Foo simply adds a given Writer[Foo] to a companion object of the same specific class. However, this cannot be done automatically for a trait defining sum type - in this case trait Thing. The required given must be defined manually, and the ones automatically obtained for case classes can be used in it.
