Off the top of my head, I don't recall specifically where I picked up
this bad habit. I do remember that early on I was having some
problems with google queries sending me to old/obsolete versions of
Squeak related web pages (which I didn't realize at the time) so it's
entirely possible that this was where I picked it up as I had several
issues being directed to outdated packages etc. and I could have
learned it by looking at some older code that had since been corrected.
I just poked around one of my 3.10.2 images and only see this pattern
used in a couple of places (SMSqueakMap>>check,
HostFont>>widthOfString:from:to:) though these weren't places I
remember poking around early on, so I doubt that's how I picked it up.
