I tried the 1.0-rc with existing stuff like Turbine 2.3 and Torque 3.1
and they were all rather upset to find getVector() missing... :-)

This is not about "cleaning up current code". This is about being
compatible to existing and released code that uses c-c.

If we rip these out, there is no way to migrate existing code from the
various snapshots to clean 1.0. IMHO this would really upset our

We will have a release of c-c with getVector() (1.0) and then rip it
out immediately afterwards. If one needs a released version to remove
all these snapshots used in many projects, they should use 1.0. If one
needs newer stuff, they must rework their code.
