the originators themselves).
See also section 1.21 for a discussion on OOA/OOD and etc.
Summaries and comparisons will be provided in future FAQs. Suggestions for
inclusion of other major or new methodologies should be sent to the FAQ author.

[From Shuguang...] readers may download the paper if they want, though they
may continue to request hard copies. We are currently extending the paper
to compare ten OO methods and should be available shortly.
