What's the purpose of virtual, otherwise? If it is used in the sense of
object-orientation, then it is used to abstract over a set of objects (or
classes if you prefer) whose names/implementations are not known to the
programmers who specify or use the virtual objects (classes).
I'd be much more comfortable with just virtual dependencies where possible
unless there is a preference.
