i'm using 103 now.. hmm.. i understand i have to check the CVS out for the
latest version.  any significant changes to the class system in 200?  the one
in 1xx seems limited and hairy (or perhaps that's just me:), the first thing i
don't like is lack of multiple inheritance (or did i overlook something when
browsing the docs?).
and that's my main problem with it.  i'm going to be heavily utilising objects
so i need to be certain that the implementation won't stop me from doing so.
