Proposed new features
- Model the interface of nodes in an IDL.
(Stéphane) Is it really desirable? This would generate more work for the programmers and is probably not expressive enough to model optional interfaces, like in nodes that behave differently depending on command-line arguments.
- Tools to generate IDL from node and generate interface for node based on IDL
- Consider tools which enable advanced features (i.e. checking completeness, visual programming of e.g. launch files, ...).
