(Why did you top-post?)

I'm defining aliases to conform to an existing API. The “Foo” class's
attributes are what is needed, but not by the right names. So I'm making
a subclass “Bar” to provide those same attributes by the names required
by the third-party API.

  `\        me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not |
_o__)                worthy of me.” —Jesus, as quoted in Matthew 10:37 |
