I am not sure what point you are trying to make. Are you trying to justify
particular behavior using some wacky/bad failed proposal as an example? So, for
'convert' I created 2 'namespaces' instead of 1. So, what now? As for Pimpl,
then it's over 4 years old now. If the time comes, I'll re-adjust with the
spirit of the day.

Apologies but I find your line of reasoning like "you do this" somewhat immature.

What have you got all jumpy about anyway? I was not fighting anyone. I was not
criticizing anything. I was only reminding what (I think) Dave Abrahams voiced
in one of his emails.
