Just curious, was it a "fight" with yourself or with someone else's code?
Sure I had no experience with const methods, but I just can't imagine how
function or procedures intended to caclulate/find/collect some information
from the fields and properties of an object can be a problem in this field.
One example comes to mind, sometimes developer wants to know how often a
method is used, sure in this case there's no easy way to increase a feild of
the object. Can you name some other examples?
