Thats fine too but will there be a problem with ordering of the code
if the interface is functional? i.e. if I have a class('A', 'h.hpp')
and then want to add the user defined code after this, is it possible
to do with this approach?  I also thought that the UserDefined
approach would be easier to implement.
