No, come on. They're really useful.

I bet if we did a vote, you'd get at least 75% people say they were
desirable. (Properties, I mean, not the people!)

I vote yes they are a good feature (would have put them before manual object mem management) that is instance properties. I would also like to see class/static properties too as they would help with templated designs but that can wait for a bit.

I would think once the instance ones are done the class ones would fall out easily, but could be wrong ;)

I think they should. And say, did anyone on the newsgroup ever try to push them back? ;) -eye

This is actually a very common term among emergency services :). If we have a person in cardiac arrest in the back of the ambulance, the hospital wants to know our ETA (or "How long will be until your arrival?"). It seems the term is quite popular in other fields too (in the Western world, anyway). Later, John
