  1. Any plans to add operator overloading before 1.0? Vala is a very nice language and I'd hate to see it repeat such a silly Java mistake.

  2. Dude operator overloading is a good concept, if people don't like, they shouldn't use it... I would use it for vector classes and math stuff, because it's easier (and more readable) to say Vector a; Vector b; Vector c = a + b;
