I agree it depends on programming style. But to continue with the example,
it would have to be:


because we have many packages here with their own functions.

Wouldn't this just proliferate the number of classes instead of functions?
For every type of plot in my package, I would have to add a special class
branching off of mySpecialObject. Users would have to remember to convert
from mySpecialObject to mySpecialObjectPCA or mySpecialObjectMAPlot or
mySpecialObjectVarianceMeanPlot, etc.
