Oh, you wily so and so.

If you've been following this thread, you'll see that I've been generally
careful to narrow things down to "modern OO", i.e. the generation of Kay,
Stroustroup and Meyer.

I'm quite familaiar with the history of OO, and I even hinted at Simula in
an earlier post through my indication of simulation frameworks as a parent
of OO (along with early AI K-rep through frames & slots).

But you seized on one of the few places where I got lazy and didn't make
this careful distinction yet again.

But that's OK.  I'd have done the same thing.
