I thought I had already indicated:

  - that a heavily overloaded method indicates a missing abstraction [1]

  - that Source is not ideal, but a better basis for evolution than a 
class with a heavily overloaded method.

So if it's day 1 of iteration 2, then I suggest starting out from Source 
not polymorphism [2].


[1] strictly speaking, there's a responsibility that ought to be 
encapsulated within an object, but currently is not.
