Re: RFC: usb-modeswitch 1.2.0 release embedding jimtcl
Hi all again,
first of all, thanks for the healthy discussion.
Now, given the feedback, I plan to go with the brand new option 6 which is an
option 2, "done right" (eh, IMHO).
6) "Allow interpretation using separate libjim, from jimtcl"
This means packaging jimtcl and allow the usb-modeswitch-dispatcher to be
dynamically linked against libjim.
(That, plus "repacking to avoid the embedded jimtcl copy")
Pros: relatively easy, avoids the binary embedding of jimtcl.
Cons: replaces the need of the desktop install on a "tcl interpreter" to
"libjim"; it weighting (with default options that are more than what
is needed by the usb-modeswitch-dispatcher) 268k.
As far as I could see, it's possible to win 32k by providing a libjim-tiny
alternative library, but it doesn't seem worth it.
So, ITP on its way I guess.
