Pass - is it really needed

Actually, I thought of a serious answer to this dilemma.

I was thinking of putting a "-- pass [sys msg name]" in every blank  
system message handler Constellation creates. That way the user could  
un-comment the "pass". Like Chipp, most of the time I find the "pass"  
in a default handler unneeded.

The other approach is to include a pass on those system message  
handlers where it is likely to  be needed--those being the ones that  
the Rev IDE counts on your passing, in particular.


Buy Constellation from Runtime Revolution!
