DESCRIPTION

Often, I find myself in a bind, where I have code I want to do things properly, so it will detect of its own accord ( at run time ) misuses of varying data-structures or methods, but the very same tools that would be used to analyze and assure that things are going correctly, result in substantial performance penalties.

This module, and the infrastructure I hope builds on top of it, may hopefully provide an 'in' that lets me have the best of both worlds, fast on the production server, and concise when trying to debug it ( that is, not having to manually desk-check the whole execution cycle through various functions and modules just to find which level things are going wrong at ).

In an ideal world, code would be both fast and concise, however, that is a future fantasy, and this here instead aims to produce 80% of the same benefits, but now, instead of never.

MINOR WARNING

This code is pretty fresh. Its been done to death with T.D.D., and does everything I want it to, but there's always bugs.
