Hi, Robert.

I started to use explicit `this` to simplify reading and increase
"shareability" of code:
* I don't need to rely on IDE to highlight member or local
variables/functions for me, so I can get away with simpler and faster
tools (VIM, in my case)
* I can paste such code blocks anywhere, and a reader won't need to
run IDE to know this is member or local variable/function/etc.

So far this approach looks better to me. When I see code referencing
member variables/functions without `this`, I need to know what
particular color IDE uses to tell member/local variables apart. And to
make things more complicated, different IDEs use different colors :)
