Description Todd Berman 2013-03-23 01:21:45 UTC
Methods like NSString's UIStringDrawing category are put in strange places (like as instance methods on UIView, making it impossible to call easily from static methods, etc).

Instead they should use the [Category] support and be extension methods on string.

I am sure there are lots of other similar instances.
