Yes, I agree with regard to those who invent methods, but since the 
inventor is likely to be closely involved in, or the commissioning of 
the first ringing of the method, does it make much difference? In any 
case is it really true to say that methods are invented? Except for 
special purpose methods and principles there cannot be much now that one 
can fairly claim to have uniquely originated. No doubt this is a well 
rehearsed discussion.
