kara spengler commented on SVC-3429:

Right Burnham, I absolutely refuse to add a second prim when one is not needed. I am not about to make my things less efficient because LL will not fix a bug. Especially in light of upcoming script limits you think they would not *want* us replacing a simple call to get/store description data to also utilize linked object messages, secondary prims, and such.

As a meta-matter, fixing some of these outstanding LSL bugs that we have to add additional scripting for would go a long way to easing the problems that mean they need script limits in the first place. For example, I ran up against the limitation of a sensor seeing less agents that could fit in a sim. The automatic response from someone I asked was 'no problem, just have a network of secondary sensors, communicate with the main one, and remove duplicates from the list'. I was floored .... LL is encouraging a culture of scripting that is adding layers of unneeded code while they are trying to get us to be more efficient.

Thanks Mephistopheles, nice to know there is a work-around, but I am still holding LL's feet to the fire on the original problem.
