I will take a look at the dependacies an see if I can come up with an organization
that doesn't go overboard in header files yet drastically reduces the number of
recompiles. After I get a set of patches I will submit those to the list and
entertain discussion on the pro's and con's of including this approach in future
releases. I know a primary concern is to make sure everything that needs to be
updated is updated.
