no, i am ok with just making the current list public. it does not seem
that we discuss really secret things here :)

well, I certainly would thank them for the heads-up and explain that the
function should not exist and a cast on the user side is the way resolve
it. In my point of view the method invites abuse without overhead (ugly
cast to use).

I agree that I am probably anal about this, as it definitely does not
matter in current code or any future code I will write using TooN. So, I
trust that I have made my point with this email :) and I am fine with
whatever you decide to do.
