journal paper bug?

No, not exactly a bug.
In a journal paper written some time ago, I used an operation supported in someone else's data structure to perform a particular operation in my problem. It turns out that the particular operation of the data structure is not exactly the thing I want for my problem... but, fortunately, when you look at it closely, you can actually use other operations supported by the data structure to do exactly the thing that I want, in the same running time. So if someone questions me about this, I can say I only skipped a lot of details...
