Yes of course. I didn't mean to criticize your suggestion: I meant to
"criticize PD" that makes that suggestion necessary.

Of course that IS a valid workaround in a lot of situations where the
use of abstractions is not very extensive; it is just not feasible
when you're developing some complex large scale application that you
need also to mantain or further develop in the future.

I do very much appreciate workarounds, and often need them too. I just
think that the existence of a workaround is not an "excuse" to
underestimate the importance of an issue - especially when the
workaround only applies to a restricted range of cases.
