Just how old *is* his school?  I saw the light in the 70's.  For those of
you too young to remember, those were menacing and sinister days, when pant
legs were too wide at the bottom, and the grotesque evil of "top down
programming" was on the land.  But by '86, the Joy of OOP was widely known.
Flowers bloomed and birds chirped.  Pant legs narrowed.  I believe that was
the year I attended the first C++ conference in Santa Fe.
