And about the watchful eye: yes, that's the spirit that makes good code!

That depends on the amount of preparation and planning I invested in 2). If I'd thought there was quite a bit of it, and another developer wanted to work on 2), I would try to convince him that it would be substantial more work for him than for me. Otherwise, I would start working on 3) :-) > > and is in general not very helpful. > I am VERY surprised you say that!

The way you understood this, you can indeed be very surprised. I meant that strictly restricted to the matter (not wanting to give away a task although it might be a good decision to do so). In general, I consider you and your comments very helpful.

I've added some ToDo items, and also the recent problems found in BLooper/BWindow, etc. For example, you will get plenty of B_MESSAGE_NOT_UNDERSTOOD messages, which is not the case in BeOS (and I just recently fixed an endless loop regarding those).
