Well, for some it's ignorance. However, I don't audacity has anything
to do with it. Thinking of OO techniques to extend functionality at
runtime for methods of a type is easier to think about for most. 
Though, I think a decorator more closely matches a module functor*.
However, if somebody is asking for help with an OO question, I'll give
an OO answer. ;-)

* I say "module functor" because in the C++ world a "functor" stands
for "function object" and confusing the two would be, well, confusing.
Maybe just for me tho.
