But only slightly. For myself, I primarily use SLIB for cut-and-paste reuse, it is my library of last resort. I don't like the burden of its module system and I frequently find that it implements almost-but-not-quite the functionality I need. Anyway, I'm not going to go off slagging what is still a good body of software (because I *do* use a fair few bits of it in various projects), but I just can't see compatibility with SLIB as being an issue.
