    I know - I was thinking about all of this while I was on holiday, and came to roughly the same conclusion. The AbstractRequest is an interface -- refactoring along those lines fixes the problems that you've had. The biggest problem with that is with altering the slot system to deal with it. I've not seen the patches you've submitted so far, but I should be able to have a look at them tomorrow. Hopefully they solve the problem.

    As far as frameworks being a flexible way to solve a problem - its true. They are. Balance however is the most important thing to maintain - you want the framework to take the painful repeat work away from you, but not to remove the flexibility of writing something from scratch.

    Definitly one of the goals when OpenFrame was written was to keep that balance acceptable - I'm glad to hear it meets that goal.
    • Oh and you're right - OpenFrame is not just for web programming - that was another massive requirement for what I was trying to do with it - the web is just a protocol.
