As my original post that started this thread said, my suggestions were
not for 3.0.  Most likely for 4.0, though perhaps some for 3.1.

I at no time said these changes should be incorporated into 3.0.  I
don't believe 3.0 has been mentioned at all in regards to any of
this.  After having gone through 12 (nearly 13) patch levels, it's not
time to be introducing features or design changes into 3.0.

Your tone from the beginning has been adversarial, confrontational, at
times demeaning, and very closed minded.  I am sorry if you've fealt
my comments have attacked you, your code, or the work of anyone else
-- that has not been the intention, and I don't think that anyone
feels that that has been the result.  But we _do_ need to discuss
these things, and Circle's future needs to be well planned.
Development isn't a step-based thing... we need to constantly be
looking ahead into future versions.
