Grouping signals in StrangeIoC

Recently I have started relearning Unity3d and because I very much enjoy DI and IoC I’m also relearning StrangeIoC. Since I’ve last looked at Strange, Signals have been added. This makes me very happy being an old AS3 dev that <3’d Robotlegs and AS3Signals.

Anywho, one “problem” with signals, that existed in flash as well, is that each signal is a class. The idea of making a 5 line class for each signal I want to dispatch irks me. My solution is an ugly one but I liked it when doing flash and so far like it here as well.

namespace ca.openbracket.signals{
    public class StartSignal:Signal{}
    public class TestSignal:Signal{}
}

What I like about this approach is that I can group my related signals into a single file and see them all.  The two big drawbacks are searching for a signal can be difficult if you aren’t accustomed to this and you don’t get more granulated version control details.

Is this worth it? I have no idea. But it makes me happy.
