Oh, cool, a response at last :-).

Well first off, it isn't quite complete and it hasn't been
properly tested either.

Secondly, with regard to the method names, which do you prefer:

    - OpenRead
    - openRead
    - open_read
    - something else

Since you're the only person who actually responded to the real
meat of my email, I have to assume that you are the only person
on this list with a love for C++ and hence the only one who
should have any real input on this issue ;-).

And what you and I come up with the Windiots will have to live
with :-).
