Your point of view is very interesting.
Can we imagine a system where user specifies a minimal set of features, that
is a list of classes and protocols (i mean traits), and then where dependency
on other classes and traits is automatically infered ?
As not statically typed, i'am not sure that this is ever possible, but some
tools might assist the user in selecting...
I did not have time to test Spoon until now, but that may well be a pragmatic
answer taking the reverse problem...
Maybe a mixture of two approches make sense ?
