Subject Re: Automatic support of XML-RPC introspection
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2002 00:36:59 GMT
I'm fine with properties, however the _public definitions are handy in one 
regard: It is easy to mark methods that should be public inline in your 
source file, rather than some sort of external file.

Any other opinions?  I'm happy to go either way.  

The introspection spec used to be on www.xmlrpc.org, however it seems to be 
missing now.  Google has a cache though...
