ovelapping instances under control
Fri, 30 May 2003 21:04:23 +0200
I think that there is consensus regarding the
usefulness of overlapping instances. But it is
a pitty that the -fallow-overlapping-instances
declaration is so pervasive. I mean:
- If I deal with several classes, only few of
them require overlapping instances, then I would
like to restrict -fallow to the relevant classes.
- If I compile a module A with overlapping instances
allowed, and I import A into B, then I don't want
to be forced to allow overlapping instances in B
unless B by itself wants to produce overlaps.
Did I miss anything?
If not, would that be difficult (formally, technically)?
