I don't think that anybody are talking this personally - at least they
shouldn't. My opinion is that we don't have the resources at W3C to rewrite
libwww in C++ but I also don't think that this is necessary. What _is_
feasible, however, would be to build a C++ API on top of the libwww core.
For example a new HTAccess module with a lot better interface for getting a
URL in a simple way. This would be a good start!
I just toook a quick count - there are almost 350 subscribers to this
mailing list and I would be surprised if we should not be able to put
together a small team that would have as task to write a client API in C++
on top of libwww.
We would be happy to provide the disk space and maybe an additional mailing
list for this.
What do you say?
