    2020''' Modularized Compilation/variable sized compiled files: ''' There are no plans to break AutoIt into components so that compiling a script will be smaller by only containing the components being used instead of everything. There are a couple reasons for this. First, it's a technological nightmare to implement. Second, it breaks any form of dynamic code. Features like Execute(), /AutoIt3ExecuteLine and /AutoIt3ExecuteScript would be broken. Having each compiled script capable of acting as a full-interpreter is a very powerful feature. Also, regardless of the size of a compiled file, remember that you still get a stand-alone product with no run-time dependencies outside what the operating system provides. A little size is a small price to pay.

    22 ''' FileInstall() accepting variables for the source: '''The source file used in a FileInstall() statement must be known at <u>compile</u> time. Variables are not evaluated until <u>run-time</u>. Changing this behavior makes no sense and will not be done.

    2424''' New Opt()/AutoItSetOption() flags: ''' Asking for an addition to Opt() is the same as forfeiting your life as far as I'm concerned. There are already far too many flags for this function, most of which do not need to exist in that function. Adding new flags is out of the question until some of the garbage flags are removed which isn't going to happen anytime soon.
