Well the first reason is that you cant overload a function with a return
value, second reason and the main one, is that copying a vector is "costly"
so to prevent that i passes it by reference avoids that, but i can change
it later if needed. I already finished the porting all the needed code, but
didnt want to send it all because its alot of patches. I wanted another
people review to double check i didnt mess it up.

Can i send the rest of the patches? or maybe send it by parts?? Thanks for
