Maybe... but being a procedural programmer, OO is non-trivial for me,
whereas most procedural programs *are* easy to read for me if I know the
programming language.

Clearly, OO has a lot of specific terms, an so do patterns. But that doesn't
scare me, I am lazy myself so I would have done the same thing ;-)
