I think we should provide the programers with web class lib, 
which is just like MFC. It seems to me that current w3c lib
isn't similiar to ordinary lib, as it not only provide normal
functions, but also a kind of architecture, in which all the data
streams are hiden. So if we want to use  w3c lib, we have to use this
architecture. It is inconvinent and not fexible for the programers.
If the lib is provided with class lib, things will be completely
different, as C++ have many advantages over C. For example, if 
programers doesn't feel convinient to use some functions, he can
simply write a new function to overload it without touching the lib
itself, and it is easier to maintain the whole lib.
