I'm not taking sides here, but I want to note that none of the takers
on my latest challenge have shown separate interface files.  All the
ones I've seen used inline syntax.  So perhaps it's not even necessary
to get all bent out of shape over this one.  Or perhaps one of the
proponents could post an example instead of responding directly to
Greg's screaming.  (Too much sugar again, Greg? :-)
