Still, there are simpler examples. But it's not a big deal.

I am concerned that you are adding methods that are not used in any example.
See below.

Oh, now I see that you have added _2_ extra method overloads.

I think we need to test this in an example. Maybe a new, small, example.
Untested code is usually buggy.

Thanks and well done.
