May I ask you to re-consider?

Why do you think it's useless?

I do think it's much more readable:
- Characters count is less
- Prototype is declared in headers, today, there is no prototype, and  
you have to look at the code to know what argument you should put in.  
That's bad for autocompletion and such.

Remember, clean up the code is making it more maintainable, so don't  
arg that it's useless.

I do wait your _objective_ arguments. Please don't tell about how much  
work this is, as I plan to do the work.

Thanks for your answer,
