I don't like to redefine common types with own ones, such as int, char
etc. It may be necessary for cross-platform funtionality, but that does
not mean I have to like it. I also don't like to be force to have a common
prefix for all classes, that's what namespaces are for. Namespaces don't
maybe yet work fully, but at the time PP is ready they most likely will.
It's not hard to make autoconf check for namespaces, set a flag in
config.h and then check that flag in the headers, like:

namespace PenguinPlay {

class Foo {


It think... I plan on using something similar in my scenegraph.
