Right Austin,
I have... thats why I asked the question why not sit down and say
here is what we want from the DIB engine here is the Spec do this ..
I have seen the here is what I don't like. But nothing showing what
exactly is needed. This would be the first step in resolving this
circular argument / discussion which is what I am trying to
facilitate =D. Until that is done all we can do is have this same
circular argument / discussion =D
