I'm sorry, I'm having a lot of trouble understanding what this even means,
let alone whether or not I think it is true. According to Tim's definitions
a method is a sequence of changes -- they are the things that connect rows,
and thus sort come in between rows; indeed, when you're ringing spliced,
don't some rows essentially "belong" to two different methods, or at least
serve as the glue between them? What does it mean to have only one method
per row?
