Great work, nice to see you're still continueing to work on Overflow. I 
got a problem though. Compilation of Overflow-0.5.0 goes without any 
problem, but during compilation of Piper I got:

In file included from /usr/local/include/ObjectRef.h:8,
                  from plugin_sensor_PL_main.c:16:
/usr/local/include/net_types.h:241: type/value mismatch at argument 1 in 
template parameter list for `template <class T> TypeTraits<T>'
/usr/local/include/net_types.h:241:   expected a type, got `String'
/usr/local/include/net_types.h:241: explicit specialization of 
non-template `{anonymous struct}'
/usr/local/include/net_types.h:241: anonymous class type not used to 
declare any objects

my C++ knowlegde is too limited to fix this, and I guess this should be 
fixed in the Overflow codebase. Any thoughts?

Very nice.. I didn't thought about this issue yet ;)
