If anything this discussion has shown that there are quite different
priorities for many different developers.

A key priority for many of us here seems to be to have a clean
separation in public and private fields and keeping the public API
clean and respectable (no weird ifdeffery in public headers, for
We've had such a messy API for such a long time, so if we define any
