The work that you have done is the starting point, now we can see what
you are proposing
exactly. API changes are more difficult that regular bug fixes. For
instance, you have defined
disconnect() as an abstract method. That causes problems for source and
It's not a big deal, but it's an example of the kind of issue we need to
resolve before going to the CCC.
