this is about the worst possible outcome of the entire discussion.

what i don't understand is:
what keeps people from creating a "typhoon" library that adds the
additional objects?

there is nothing stating that all those objects need to be in the
one-and-only library named "cyclone".
having two non-identical libraries named "cyclone" (or "zexy") is
obviously nuts; but having two libraries with similar tasks and similar
(but distinguishable) names could be a win for everybody.

it's not like anybody writing compat objects needed to use the (imho
overly complicated for most objects) infrastructure part of cyclone.


PS: and what is that "hurricane" library for?
