Otherwise you have an array, then make a string, and then make an array again, which is a waste of time (and yes, I am contradicting a previous message from me where I stated the opposite :)

In the current code, there are 2 independent initializers, which bothers me a lot. Like you say, the symbolArray one makes more sense for a designated initializer.

John wanted to make the class methods into instance methods, which is probably better, I agree. But I don't know if he had other concerns too. John?
