comment What's the point of running unit tests on a CI server?
@BoristheSpider, I like that workflow, I hate doing the merge and then finding out that someone else has done a commit in the time it takes me to run the tests!

comment Is it acceptable for child classes to “break” parent class functionality?
But Product::factory() is a static method, not an instance method so is not part of the contract for subtypes. (unless using something very odd like smalltalk)

comment Why have private static methods?
@Magnilex, The "this" pointer does not get passed to static class methods, therefore they will tend to be faster then static instance methods, unless the compiler detects the "this" is not used in the instance method (unlikely).
