(BTW. we're referring to this [ ] thread).

Well, maybe not /that/ clear regarding all the details. Still -- considering that
the "include directory suggestion" would require to use #include with weird
relative paths (which at least you and me felt uncomfortable with), that the
winner (or not) is aesthetically quite appealing, that there is (at least some)
existing code, and that all other alternatives we considered had significant
drawbacks, it's clear enough IMO.

Right. That would be great (and excuse me in case my question reads too
provocative -- I meant to imply that -first of all- Eric's opinion on all that
stuff is very welcome, of course ;-) )!
