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.
