I posted that up there when I found it because it is hilarious.  I
assume that it is a satire (not exactly the same thing as a "hoax":-).
However, as is the case with much satire, it contains a lot of little
nuggets that (should) make you think... about "good practice" ways of
coding in C++ if nothing else.
