        FYI: I do not find this at all. On the contrary,
I really like all small functions to be defined 'in class',
and I like the data members defined first, so that I have
an idea what the representation is, and therefore be able to
understand the implementation of those functions that
are defined 'in class'. [Just my opinion]

        This style saves lots of useless comments
saying what a function does: the comments are
reserved for cases where the function is too
long to display in class.
