Lie? Sales pitch? Point of view? Incurable optimism?

Many OO idealists forget, for whatever reason, to mention their constraints.
Without the constraints, I don't get anywhere.

(I like to read the eXtreme Programming stuff. And I cast an ugly epithet at
Microsoft for re-purposing yet another acronym.)

I'm just beginning to get the hang of OO, and I think it's useful in its
place, especially if I mostly avoid deliberately trying to write re-useable
