Subject [lang] Why is a Range not a Pair?
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2011 16:03:09 GMT
Why is a Range not a Pair?

Because... is it fails the "is a kind of" OOD test?

I could say that a range is a pair of bounds (an upper and lower bound.)

I could argue that Range should subclass Pair. The question is: why are we
NOT eating our own dog food?

Which then brings me to the names of the bounds for Range: minimum and
maximum, which IMO should be lowerBound and upperBound.

Thoughts?
