I suppose it is... but the discussion has given me some food for thought
and that isn't a bad thing. I just wanted to get some opinions about the
use of typedefs in this manner, and I definitely got that and then some!
Another nice side effect was being reminded about the term "code smell",
which while I knew of the concept I had forgot the name itself. That has
produced some very good reading of things to avoid in my code, which in
and of itself is not a bad outcome for this discussion!
