while this particular example does not create much bloat, repeated
need to access members can make code substantially larger than that of
it's counterpart on Apple's end. If so, what do I need to do to start
using this feature. Else if not, is there a plan to add this in the
(hopefully near) future?
the "bloat" is only in your source code, not in the generated code.
Is it worth the deal?
You actually make the reader/programmer harder to understand when you
are realling use a a C array with some smart pointer arithmetic and
when you are using an NSArray/NSMutableArray.
I vastly personaly vastly prefer the clear distinction: the same goes
for struct access vs. properties.
Matter of personal taste of course, but especially in sometimes
low-level code where C and Obj-C are mixed, the distinction increases
my two cents.
