Thanks Kris (and welcome back)! This is a great honor for me.

I had not read such an article and there was no message_types.rb in
my code. However, I believe you are referring to the
over-aggressive OOP factorization of Message classes.

Initially, I just had a single Message class that performed to/from
9P byte-stream conversion for all types of messages (KISS, YAGNI).
After I did some profiling, it showed that this runtime message
processing (if format == blah, do blah blah, ...) was a performance

So I simply factored the conditional runtime into specialized
classes / traits which each only handled their particular case.
Gained a 129% speed up from doing this, and it didn't make the code
too much more complex. :-)
