YES please, I don't think people in general appreciate the value of
using object systems and so tend to do lots of unneccesary work. For
example, in my project I didn't make decent objects of my components,
just some structs that "were enough". It took me several weeks to make
it somewhat working and still it had some issues plus extending it was
Then I did a smart move by throwing the structs away, making proper
objects and it took me half the time and work to make it work better
than it did before. And the system is easily extendable.
Plus you get the easy bindings.
These are also on the top of my list of Good Ideas(tm).
Again, in my project I'm using hashtables to pass argument data
(strings) through dbus and it's extendable to the end of the world
(=memory+swap) without breaking comaptibility. It doesn't work for all
things of course.
But the collection scheme sounds very good IMO.
Well, actually, I liked the whole proposal :)
Is this on the wiki?
