Hi Andreas,

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 ?
