What the rest any different from the very mathy?  The classes and objects
don't care what their behaviors are.

It use to be that people said you should never implement a compiler using OO
because for all of the "obvious" reasons.  Then someone did it and found out
that their solution was essentially as fast, easier to maintain, and
produced a smaller code base.  As far as I am concerned the same experience
was had by the "data-visualization" industry.

Now -- where is that procedural code -- I have the OO code in hand?
