I've been intimately familair with Smalltalk, the father of all OO
languages, since about 1982 or so, and I have been aware of it and OO
concepts and their importance in computer science since about 1977.

The concepts are pretty obvious here.  What's perhaps confusing to some
is the mixing of OO programming in environments traditionally tailored
to procedural programming languages.

Of course I can't make excuses for half-baked ideas that try to pass
themselves off as OO.....

I guess you should be more accurate about the things you claim then....

Oh well....  You create the circumstances you must live with.....

Seems at least some people intimately involved with your work don't
think CVS is right for you......

Excuse me?  Most of your silly jabs are pretty, well, silly.

However this cannot go unchallenged.  Yes, you certainly did say that
you though I was the only person who found concurrent development to be
an important aspect of a large project!
