Apart from anything else the quoted example is a tiny sub-set (posted without comments or explanation - and entirely out of context) from a procedural program (certainly not a class definition) used to set the working environment for a presentation that I gave at the San Diego DevCon in 2001.

This code is not even supposed to be application code - it's just the configuration program for a conference session - which is hardly a normal operating environment.
