Of course not all ideas are necessary right, it's more like a brainstorming. The idea of automatically dispatching to some other module any call to an undefined function is a little older (in the context) and for what I am concerned I am already past it. 

I thought Martin's remark was about the latest topics, where I talked about extending behaviours.
