RE: [equinox-dev] support for component API refactoring


Yup, that is the desired net effect.  Clearly there are limits to what changes can be papered over but it would be interesting (IMHO) to investigate those limits.

RE: [equinox-dev] support for component API refactoring





That's a cool idea. It reminds me of Apache redirects and rewrite filters: you want to reorganize your web site but you have an unknown number of people linking into it. You can't change all their pages, so you can cause permanent redirects like:

  Redirect 301 /old/path.html http://example.com/new/path.html

or create pattern substitutions, like:

  RewriteRule ^feed/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ /index.php?&feed=$1 [QSA,L]

Is that what you had in mind, except for APIs instead of URLs?
