Carl may have been exaggerating there. The reason why objects cannot be extended is the same reason why there is currently a limit on the number of words in the system (which, btw, will be increased from 4000 to 8000 in Core 2.6). We do intend to lift these restrictions, but doing so is not trivial, and it most likely won't be in 2.6. -- Holger Kruse [kruse--nordicglobal--com]
