> Not really, since they are static inline. This is by design, that for any file you want to use a safestack in, you just start with a DEFINE_ line. The mistake we did was to leave a few common ones in the safestack header file. (same thing for lhash)
Which means we’ve a compatibility issue. The functions are in a public header, they can be used by any application. We need to continue supporting such use.
Asking a user to add a DEFINE_ line is API breaking.
I would be pro making such a change but we’d need to accept the consequences.
