Hey Göran, how about self which joins code and image into the same thing. To
be honest I like the idea of self that the separation of classes and objects
is unnecessary, and I love the slot concept too, which draws no difference
between function calls and accesses to instance variables.
I think modules should contain objects too. When you draw no difference
between image and code, you need no gui-builder, cos you can simplystick
together some widgets to a gui and then save it somewhere in the snapshot,
and when code needs the gui, it simply loads the gui, without constructing it
widget by widget.
And when modules contain objects anyway -- why would we bother to separate
code and object space?
Give thought to your reputation. Consider changing name and moving to
a new town.
