So, when I propose No Private Methods, that's because it's the most extreme thing I could think of. I want to know what that looks like, so that I know when I've got the right set of private methods.
He says this in a conversation about writing shorter methods. Sounds to me like he's iterating closer and closer to a Smalltalk kind of viewpoint.
Update: Now he wants everything to be an object, and notification of attribute changes. Hmm - you mean setters like this, maybe:
commentText: someText commentText := someText. self changed: #commentText.
This guy really, really needs to look at Smalltalk :)
