Excellent. I've misunderstood what Florian originally meant. If you look at the
standard he mentioned, there are *many* bizzare and undesirable features
included in it.
In Delphi compatibility mode, the Fields vs Methods and Properties placement is
important. Most of the rest of this argument came from the fact that Florian
implied that you would be implementing the whole of this standard. Including
therefore, multiple inheritence, abstract classes, property classes, etc. None
of which are called for.

Touché, mi amigo. However, I'm currently too busy on the BeOS port.. more
specifically the BeAPI wrapper. I got a copy of R4.5 of BeOS from a friend
today (he sent me the original CD, as if in disgust that Be Inc have sold their
IP's), so hopefully R4.5 support will now be possible.
If I do get any time, I'll take a look. I doubt it will be any time soon. I'll
d/l the code today. The network here ground to a near halt yesterday, so I
couldn't get the stuff down.
