That's the problem.  I don't buy this as a definition of OO.  There are
other models that are not OO that expound the same tenets.  OO is just one
model that uses the above ideas, but in a somewhat limited way.

I think the argument has pretty much come down to the basis, and as
usual, the disagreement is merely one of definition.

Thanks for the ride.
