No need to be sorry, the subject comes and goes, we learn something
every time; I just didn't quite get where it came from at this moment.

Despite not having that much experience with SC I think I agree. This
situation follows from a few things; stuff like SC's age and how usage
in education is one of the primary things ChucK is aimed at.

ChucK tends to be straightforward but perhaps not towards "beauty" in
more complicated projects, at least not always. We should probably
address some of that at some point. I have some situations in mind,
but nothing that I feel should be prioritised right now.

The class system is primitive and known to be so, that's true. I'm not
sure I understand what issue events have for you though I suspect the
shreduler could be optimised.

Aside from lacking wide-spread adoption, do you see issues with the
current idea of ChuGins and Git?

I hope so too :-)
