A little. Not very much.

And traded off against the consistency and flexibility I mentioned earlier in Re: Object Oriented packages - classes and subroutines, brevity loses out.

So while I see your point, I value other things way more.

    From that post, you clearly believe that (1) everything is a method, and (2) you'll usually want to override things. In my experience and in my view, both of these claims are deeply wrong, but it's obvious they are a matter of taste. For example, I find smalltalk loathsome and dogmatic, but it appeals to a lot of people.
