Slim is not so slim anymore? -- just thoughts don't respond

Replying to myself... On the other hand the problems that are being solved by composer and by using a PSR-4 autoloader are great things to (more or less) finally conquer. And clearly the Slim devs are leading the charge on (mostly) very positive change. The beauty of slim to me was that I found it at V2, pulled it down and it was just easy. I included just one file and it did what I wanted. Slim was great simply because of that. But not all libraries and situations are that simple, which is of course where composer and autoloading come in. It's just something to keep an eye on that's all. Sometimes one step at a time we get astray and don't realize it. I can't say that's the case here by any means. Without recanting my comments I just thought I'd add more to soften them. Slim is still great.
