Hey Scott, sorry, while I took your quote out of context in my reply
I wasn't really replying at you. I came back to what seemed like 10
posts which skirted around the issue and questioned our coding style
which may be a valid issue but I fear that it is not going to solve
our code bloat.
I guess style may be a contributing factor but I rate maintainable,
beautiful code incredibly highly and so I feel this is not a path
that offers the most promise.
I think what I'll do now is draft up a proposal so we have a solid
direction, I think this is better than hypothesising further. I feel
that dojo-lite, the very core, should be the best of breed and that
the bulk, the weighty parts should be optional additions. Dojo-lite
will then comprise the truly useful functions that will make a
developer feel naked without, it should be portable and light weight
and have the rest of dojo standing by for making real world Web apps.
