Subject Re: [PATCH] Adding Dynamic elements for the n'th time
Date Wed, 27 Nov 2002 15:28:50 GMT
I was just commenting that what little I know of Avalon/Cocoon has the 
same types of features our recent discussions have touched on (make 
everything an interface, make it pluggable with outside configuration, etc).

I definitely agree with the polymorphic behavior.  When/if I ever get 
time to think through it more, I want the polymorphic behavior even at 
the Project level.
