It seems that it will occasionally happen to “loose” the context for a
topic if an issue number was not registered for it.

I hope that our constructive dialogue can result into such software
development results (together with documentation extensions).

I started with an example (which is simple enough to be reusable) for this
issue. I could include adjusted variants into various make scripts as needed.

But design/construction patterns can be also so simple in some cases so that
they will be “included” (or just applied) somehow again. Will it become
more useful to agree on corresponding (function) names
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_design_pattern> then?
