  • 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:

    string _name;

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

    Would make for cleaner code.
    Seems very promising though.

    Thank you.
