Hopefully, I will never have to maintain your script, without you being around. Your methodology doesn't have to resemble mine and understanding your classes would probably be a significant problem for me. Those classes aren't very well documented, are they? In that case, I prefer standardized types like integer, float or string to do my evil deeds. The person who will have to untangle my scripts after me will find them much easier to understand.
