Mel, tedd, et al.:

If you don't want to use objects, don't.  We won't make you.

But for those of us the DO want to use objects, the fact that FB^3 will support
them is very good news.  Let us have our fun, too.  Object-oriented programming
is a good thing.  C++ is a bad implementation of OOP, so don't judge the
concept by one implementation.

Objective-C and Java are good implementations of OOP (IMHO).
