    The Discussion

      Thanks

      just wondering how much work it would take to change the framework so that instead of writing:

      Independent<string> _name = new Independent<string>();

      you could write:

      [Independent]
      string _name;

      if possible at all, desirable, or worth the effort. Smiley

      Would make for cleaner code.
      Seems very promising though.

      Thank you.
