This is a big changing after all :-P

As Doug suggested at very beginning, all these changing are necessary
in order to eliminate the usage of old inferring method, then we will
have a clean stage for next reform.

And since it's big, I tried to classified them according to logical,
to help us review more easily, I'm not sure but compress the series
may increasing the difficulty of reviewing...

Actually the main reform work finished in 1#~15#, the rest are just
introducing cap_XX which we only need to check the description and
usage, thus I'd like to suggest we focus on reviewing 1#~15#, after all,
the rest won't introducing Bug and we can edit them at any time :-P

Frankly speaking I think it's a good thing that we locate errors at
this moment, whenever someone find issues, that means the patch has
been reviewed thoroughly, I think may be just few more version, this
series will become stable ;-)
