Reduce windows crate size by reducing the amount of Xaml bindings #1341

@kennykerr kennykerr commented Nov 19, 2021

The Xaml API is huge and has a deep class hierarchy that ends up causing an explosion of redundant method definitions as the class hierarchy is simulated in Rust. This update avoids stamping out those "inherited" methods for derived classes. Callers can still cast to base classes to call them, but this dramatically reduces the code size and should even improve compile time for developers using Xaml. There is a bit of a usability hit if you happen to be using Xaml, but since it is focused on C# developers I don't think that's a serious concern.
