Neat. Good to see articles in support of TypeInfo/ClassInfo!
I do wish we extended it for full reflection capabilities though...
Andrei suggested using rtlInfo but AFAICT this requires building a
custom druntime. It would be easy to support this method in addition to
'deallocator' and 'hash' but I suspect it would not be a very popular
Maybe we could have a void* in TypeInfo and a global integer index
that extensions could use to allocate entries?
Instead of hacking new features in, we should work on a full redesign.
Clearly its needed between TypeInfo not cross the dll boundary on
Windows (yay no classes!), -betterC and of course full reflection that
we can do significantly better in this department.
