Being unfamiliar with git, I've submitted an AWK answer by e-mail.
I've used quite a few OO languages. I like to think that I *am*
an OO programmer. But this exercise struck me from the beginning
as something where classes would add nothing but bulk. As a fan
of Smalltalk, I have to say that the Smalltalk version confirmed
this for me; a Smalltalk solution for this exercise could be a lot
smaller than that one if it _didn't_ introduce new classes.
