[h323plus] Question about new ASN compiler

To all,

Some time ago, an independent group of developers created a new ASN 
compiler based on the original code provided released by OPAL/OpenH323. 
This code created by this compiler has been used in several commercial 
projects that I have been involved in, and it definitely works.

The big advantage is that the code created by this compiler is MUCH 
smaller at run-time that the original OPAL/H.323 code. As in ten times 

The big disadvantage is that the code created by this compiler is very 
different from the code created by the old compiler. The code uses C++ 
templates heavily, and there is no way to make it look similar.

Robert and I have not considered introducing this new compiler to date 
because of the problems it would cause.

But, we would like to hear the opinions of other people about this code. 
If the general consensus is that people would like to see it used, then 
we will put in the work to make it happen. If the general consensus is 
that people do think it is worth the hassle, then we will stop worrying 
about it :)

I've copied this message to both the h323plus and GnuGk lists as this 
decision has obvious ramifications for both projects
