It never even occurred to me that the term "signature", as used in C++,
had anything to do with the ordinary English use of the term. I didn't
see any connection, and even now that I have a more accurate
understanding of what it means, the connection seems very weak. I have
no idea how I came by my misunderstanding of what the term means in C++,
but the fact that there are so many places where my misunderstanding
fails to cause any problems probably played a key role in that process.
