Thanks for posting that.  I had given up on trying it.  I follow the
changes you made up this point.  I will have to think some more to get
the rest of this.
The way you provided a catch for not having a width, I don't
understand the purpose of a Square subclass.  Couldn't side just be
length?
BTW I am willing to forget any mention of getter/setter.  We can just
pretend that never happened.
