Which may take a while, given his current schedule.

This is different from "style", however, in that the BP include
programming constructs that help purge gremlins rather than
make the code look pretty.

One good example is separating construction and initialization
of code: it may not make the code any easier to read but does
aid in assembling and inheriting data.
