OK, I agree that all fields *should* be private, but in these cases, the 
fields are in inner classes (I never declare more than one class in a 
source file, so I'm not sure that all of these are inner classes, but 
bear with me), so the visibility of the field is restricted to the Class 
that the inner class is in correct?  And as such it is actually 
"private" to other classes even if it's declared protected.

Or have I got my visibility/scope rules muddled.
