Yes, that's about how I do it. Where I was coming from was that I was thinking that a description of some source code is usually made up of the objective and sometimes the plan of attack, and that not being able to articulate those in some natural language was often a sign that they were not well understood by the coder. But, it seems that some people can actually think in symbols, so I guess I was wrong.
