In this case, yes, you probably want to explicitly represent the
sequence of steps as an explicit list of operators.
I think you may have wanted somehow to get this ordered sequence "for
free" by iterating over the class's methods, perhaps through a dir().
However, trying to get this ordering from the class via method
iteration is unreliable because, underneath the service, the iteration
is walking through a dictionary, and dictionaries do not give us a
deterministic ordering: the ordering is allowed to change on us
between program runs.
And in fact, in certain environments, dictionary iteration is
_guaranteed_ to give us a different ordering on every program run.
Ultimately, this means that if we want an ordered sequence, we can't
depend on dictionary iteration. Lists are what we want.
