I guess you are aware that other, well reputed and prominent people
several times tried to do so  ... failed and ditched any such kind of

What I was talking above was implementing BSP-APIs (such thing doesn't
exist), was trying to eliminate all defines from headers (c.f.
score/cpu), etc. I.e. simple means of adjusting implementation details,
not turning "the whole thing" upside down.

However I agree, so object-oriented working principles (e.g. using
Widget-technology, or the like) would be helpful.
