I know you heard this ( ) but it was back in 2005. Things have changed and I was wondering if you reconsidered this.

There are moments when you need to restrict access to some private functions in OOP programming, especially when you distribute code to others. Developers should not be allowed to call those methods but just some select functions (methods) should.

That's where 'friend' would come in great help.

Thanks! Just food for thought. Would be soo coool in terms of maintaining code security and good structure.
