Subject Re: short term branch for project/group keys
Date Thu, 21 Dec 2006 23:10:18 GMT
The web pages use a combination of id's which are currently jpox id's
and in some places the actual freeform name string is being passed
around on the URL in order to influence program logic and security
decisions..

all of that is what I want to unite behind stronger typed string keys.
