Yes, but that would presumably be the genteel ballroom-style waltz, not the
hideous countryside threshing-floor type of push-me-pull-you that the founders
of the Society detested so much that they had to invent the modern poussette
to replace it. I presume that if Miss Milligan had seen you waltz she probably
would have written the movement into every other dance on purpose.

There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so
simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make
it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. -- C. A. R. Hoare
