> Improvements for cppclass are definitely welcome :)

Rather not mine :P I have packed cppclass into record. For "wrapped
cppclass" I have "default" field (aka proxy record) for direct access
combined with "managament operators" to handle "new" & "destroy" operators.

I have always many troubles with my patches/reports (many times reopened -
#25610, #25607, long pending time - #27206, not merged - #30687). I don't
have real response about ManagedFldCount (#31102) nor vManagedTable topic.
I always need to use many arguments to force my changes (even simple and
basic changes). It costs me many time, energy and nerves. I see no sense in
contributing improvements for cppclass. Especially that Jonas is in
opposition to default field/proxy records. I have patch for this but... It
has no sense. #30687 is not merged yet, so what is the sense for
contributing "yet another big patch" when I am not sure about future of
#30687 which is base for many new patches?

I will continue my work in less problematic topics like minor/major bug
fixes for FPC. Improved cppclass will be merged to NewPascal because I
can't see any chance in FPC trunk for my modifications.

Good deal for all :).

Best regards,
Maciej Izak
