comment Declaring interface in the same file as the base class, is it a good practice?
@KeithS: What happens when your one implementation becomes two? The same as when your implementation changes; you change the code to reflect that change. YAGNI applies here. You're never going to know what is going to change in future, so do the simplest thing possible. (Unfortunately testing messes with this maxim)

@ErikReppen: We've just finished a successful rewite! About 20% of the size, 5x faster and a lot nicer API to boot. Just putting in a data-point there.

comment Is this a correct situation to use a constant?
@marcof: Well, if the constants are part of a public interface then he should be following MS naming guidelines. If not, then he should at least be learning best practise early.

comment Is this a correct situation to use a constant?
Well, if this is C#, you shouldn't be using ALL_CAPS for constants. Constants should be PascalCased - stackoverflow.com/questions/242534/…

comment Being stupid to get better productivity?
@Hardwareguy: And indeed in the future, wading into a load of untested, unused, unspecified code and trying to work out what's needed from what isn't is far harder than the actual implementing.
