The design is simple and normal. Dalke's code in response to mine made
changes which would break my design. My design for my project is right.
It also just happens to be of a very traditional and common methodology.

You cannot see what the rest of the class is doing or meant to do.

It is not relevant. I just wanted to know about the possibility of
implicit self. I suppose this is a sore spot. I'll look elsewhere,
but will continue to react to people saying I am doing it wrong
when all I was asking about what the possibility of implicit self.
