Hi Uche.

Yes, I am advocating a *very* late (and potentially one-off) binding. So now I am
confused as to where you get lost in this, or how this could possibly be construed
as any endorsement of OO. My conceptual difficulties with OO are similar to your
own. Not only do I embrace wholeheartedly your 'OO has a very limited concept of
polymorphism, which is really just late binding' argument, but I add to it my own
arguments that implementation of interfaces sufficiently congruent to qualify as
currently-understood OO practice is effectively impossible in the internetwork
