True, you that you have to specify the signature of all class 
members that is implemented in a .cpp file. So you often have to 
write a lot of code twice, once for the .hpp file and once for 
the .cpp file.

Kinda made sense before C++ added templates as the .hpp file was 
slim and easy to read, now it is quite the opposite.
