    The HappySong method is found in the root folder unless one of the
    other folders "Users", "Barney" or "Songs" happens to also have a
    method named "HappySong", in which case *that* method is used.
    The HappySong method is searched for first directly in the "Songs"
    folder.  If it is not found, the acquisition hierarchy is searched
    starting at the first container in the hierarchy: "Barney".  If it
    is not found in "Barney", the "Users" folder is searched.  If it
    is not found in the "Users" folder, the root folder is searched.
    This search is called *searching the acquisition path* or
    alternately *searching the containment hierarchy*.

       If "happySong" method is no found in the root folder, is the "AnotherUser" folder searched?
