I agree with this.  

Too me, methods describe how an class's object is to behave.  I'd prefer 
to see methods defined inside the class declaration, or at least have the 
option to do it that way.

However, I'm flexible. I'd rather see FB^3 not delayed if adding the 
option would be time consuming.
