I'm not sure whether I would say it like that.
Talking about having a different type hierachy I probably would reserve for
Interfaces (See Bluebottle Paco = PC.Compile)
BTW, I just learned from Patrik that already NO November 2001 knows about delegates.
So AosIO.Mod also for Native can simply use this feature and the problem is gone.
  Sender* = PROCEDURE {DELEGATE} (...
  Receiver* = PROCEDURE {DELEGATE} (...
Hey, why didn't I just come up with this idea myself and try it without
bothering you :-(
Cheers, Edgar
