Well, I would use a :before method with slightly different specializers
than (operation component), e.g. (operation system), since you're only
interested in systems. (beware: poiu does that, too, on (operation t))

We have actually contrived to invent a new kind of hypocrite. The old
hypocrite, Tartuffe or Pecksniff, was a man whose aims were really worldly and
practical, while he pretended that they were religious. The new hypocrite is
one whose aims are really religious, while he pretends that they are worldly
and practical. — G. K. Chesterton
