This class was introduced at the beginning of MDL and was used by its creator.

This person does not contribute anymore and I never really used it so
I do not know how useful it is. I will add an issue to take a look and
either improve it or deprecate it to not make people lose time.


As Julien told you, I usually start a standard MDL application with
the generator I wrote to get the basic infrastructure.

I hope it helps you getting started smoothly.
