Let's leave people decide for themselves what's good and what's bad. 2. I think that this is a frequent misunderstanding about FXSL -- how some of the functions are implemented may seem like magic, but it is easy just to use them and to get results. What you describe is not so much a feeling of "magic" than a reaction to a contact with something new -- this is going to wear off with time. To summarise: In my previous message I was emphasizing the ease of use of FXSL and also that it makes things possible -- it is only natural that in order for this to be achieved, the library might seem a bit complex under the surface. The majority of people are good drivers without knowing the detailed workings of their car's engine -- the same is true for a good library.
