Need a Handler hint asking to re-delegate channels
Last modified: 2011-06-13 08:09:07 UTC
We could use a Hint saying "please delegate these channels".
a) DelegateChannelsTo (s) : if not the empty string, Handler should delegate those channels to this Client
b) DelegatePreferredHandler (b): if True, redirect to the PreferredHandler of the ChannelRequest
I think I'd go for a) as it's more flexible.
(a) and (b) are actually the same since we have to provide a PreferredHandler anyway. Thus (b) is better because there are not two potentially conflicting preferences.
+ It is assumed that Mission Control will correctly delegate an
+ unhandled channel. This allows requesting clients to always
ITYM “It is assumed that Mission Control will correctly pass an unhandled channel to the preferred handler”. Otherwise ++
Amended and merged :)
