Description Chandni Verma 2012-11-30 07:18:31 UTC
How are older channels identified? Should URNs/UUIDs be used which can collide so are bad and there are users not willing to establish a whole new ID system?

I propose it should be possible for the "parameters" property of dbus-tubes to be allowed to be able to add in some more parameters (eg. local data such as path to the older channel-data-file to resume or key to some local database) before invoking the handler?

Since if the file doesn't exist, the user might want to not play the game, so searching for it is the task of the approver and re-searching in the handler to actually continue would be nothing but a repetition of approver's processing.

I haven't yet looked into how to approach this implementation or what could be the implications preventing it.
