Ok now I figured it out. The reason is that this function will be used
by many "client" classes. If we use the plain and simple solution, our
codebase increases in size, because each client class will supply the
function. Not only that, but they might make an error in what they

By having the "server" class do the work, the code base decreases in
size and the amount of errors drops.
