I think they come in very handy for the Singleton OOP concept. You need to
have a "factory" that handles the object query/instantiation. If no instance
is available, it creates a new one (and stores it) and if one is already
available, it just returns that.
Naturally that looks better to have TSomeClass.GetInstance() instead of
Sure, it's possible to do without class methods, but from an OOP viewpoint it
just looks and feels wrong ;-) (imho)
