Thank you. ;-)
As others have pointed out, this is a *drastic* simplification,
perhaps an oversimplification. You will inevitably need to call a
framework's code in addition to it calling yours, and a callback
argument or two won't turn a library into a framework. But I think it
captures the essence of the difference.
