I think the introspection patch is really exciting!
Too bad I have not heard about this before!

Introspection allows you to browse the public interface and the parameters of the methods.
Inteception allows you to intercept any call and debug the call, or filter calls.

This will be really interesting to include into the gcc introspector project
http://introspector.sourceforge.net

The compiler could then  support an xml-rpc interface or generate one for other packages.

cool.......

Aaron.
I am not sure I even understand what the patch provides.
The description in on your web page perhaps requires more knowledge than
I have to understand.  Can you explain it more thoroughly.

Guys, it seems like a new release went out today...I haven't been able to
get a straight answer on whether any of you are interested in my
interceptors patch (since merged with Eric Kidd's Introspection patch).

http://aeolus.cit.cornell.edu/xmlrpc.html

Now that there is a new release I have to go back and update the patch.
Do you guys see any promise in this patch (either of them really)?  The
less I have to maintain in parallel the easier my life will be.
