I don't know.  I'm not sure what a "Dragomir" is.  If it's a name, its
definitely not the guy.  Dr. Meyer is Bertrand Meyer, an influential
French computer science type now living in Zurich if memory serves.  If
"Dragomir" is a funky way to say "Doctor", then it very well could be.
Dr. Meyer has spent a lot of time in magazine articles, at least, going
over and over the problems with the C++ school of language design.
