> Here, I also disagree. Imagine we are talking about an open-source library on GitHub. People will complain about the lack of sub-classability through issues and pull-requests. This will hopefully be enough to get discussions going on what is wrong with the API to warrant subclassing and exactly what the subclassing extension points should be. This discussion will happen around many libraries and will help educate people to think carefully about subclassing.
That's one of the false assumptions:
Many people don't want be lectured, but simply get their work doneā€¦ as it has been said before, this list is a quite exotic bubble, and it can be fatal to assume that it is representative for the mass of developers that have to deal with the consequences of its discussions.
