I understand the point, but based on my experiences with some other
libraries can understand how Manfred feels. Just one technical note:
if a class is meant to be subclassed it should be declared as such
with a pure virtual method or something. If a class can be used on its
own it should work out of the box for most common cases, IMO. Letting
people think it works for a GUI frontend (the most common case) even
if it doesn't is wrong.
