[Twisted-Python] Question about pbquote example

First, thanks for extending the TwistedQuotes example with pbquote.py
and quotetap2.py -- very helpful!
Question: in pbquote.py, the QuoteReader's method is named
perspective_nextQuote(), which returns the result of the quoter's
getQuote() ... so I'm guessing you named the perspective method that way
(instead of perspective_getQuote(), e.g.) to emphasize that the result one
perspective gets from a service is not necessarily the same as the
result another perspective would get, since it could be affected by
the perspective's identity, states, etc. -- independently of the
fact that, in this particular case, the results are random
anyway (a somewhat impertinent artifact of the quoter example ;^)?
