Well, I think it's just a nice feature. E.g. if you already have a
complex number class (or vector class or ...) it would be nice to
improve its useability by adding operators instead of writing
z:=z.add(w) whole the time. Besides, I do not consider it to be good
coding style to implement complex numbers as records and some functions.
That's IMHO exactly what OOP is good for.
