I was wondering this actually.
Doing so would deport the added complexity, to be repeated in
each bus implementation. It would in turn simplify my own calls,
ever so slightly. That means a few small-ish additional spots of
complexity instead of a single one.
I'm also thinking that maybe a few buses could avoid having linked lists
for their containers (I know it's frowned upon to roll your own, but
some might have good reasons for doing so), allowing random access, bypassing
cycling through each.
Well, I will do as you suggest, if anyone objects, please shout before I send the
