C++ modules?!?

Through a random grapevine, which ended up including twitter (shudder), I ran across this proposal for C++ modules:

http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2006/n2073.pdf

This would be absolutely amazing to have.  Lets count some ways:

  • Better compile times (more scalable at least).
  • Sensible semi-enforced code organization.
  • Less redundancy in typed code.
  • Prevent time eating bizarro crashes when saving a file mid-compile.

And the list could go on.  Sure there are other ways to achieve these things, but not to the degree modules would.  I'm crossing my fingers that the standards committee can get this in.  So much awesome!

If they do, maybe I'll be able to post more than once a year....
