Subject Re: taking the I out of Interface
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 13:17:01 GMT
-1 (non binding)

argument : What Martijn says :) And we don't use the I prefix at work,
instead we use Abstract and impl, which sucks too. Im not happy with either
conventions. So until I am aware of one which are perfect, im happy with it
as it are, plus it'll cost less for the community. As Martijn says we could
deprecate it over time making it easier to migrate.
