I can't recall replying to you on this.  Rats.  Please forgive my
short attention span.

There is already support, I believe, for something similar.

You can look in file `` and look for functions
`generateSubclass` and `generateCtor`.  Then search for "254".  You
will see that it's trying to generate the constructor when there are
more than 254 arguments.

Is that the issue you are trying to address?  If not, perhaps you
can point me in the right direction.

And, thanks for your help with this.

By the way, contacting me directly is fine.  There is also an email
list, which I have CCed in this message.  Here is a link:
