comment Throw exception or let code fail
@Warbo: Being idempotent means that running it many times with the same parameters has the same effect as running it once. So if you call LoadMaterial("foo") and then LoadMaterial("bar") you should expect the code to use bar, not foo.

comment What is the correct way to bind few classes with similar functionality?
@MateuszMigała If you want to do it properly, then yes. Very often the solution to badly designed code is a massive refactoring.

comment How to mark code lines licensed on MIT?
@Marqin Anything security-related should not be part of your code. If that's what you mean you need to fix the way the code is written. That said, your solution could work, but I don't understand why you would want to do that.
