What is an orthogonal base class?

If two base classes have no overlapping methods or data they are
said to be independent of, or orthogonal to each other. Orthogonal in the
sense means that two classes operate in different dimensions and do not
interfere with each other in any way. The same derived class may inherit
such classes with no difficulty.
