?! :^) So maybe you are focussing at the values layer and I'm focussing and the language layer. I totally accept that a values layer will be part of any implementation, I used the something of the approach some time ago (.../rebkit/tmd* on ios dev), but I don't feel it is enough by itself. Now where is my discounted cash flow custom type ?! ;^) Regards, Brett.
