Hey Nimbal thanks for the suggestions!
I didn't even really think about the frame names being global because of the way they're declared, but that's certainly a good point to avoid collisions. For the most part I've tried to keep everything as a local as possible. I'll certainly make this change.
Many of the variable names will probably be changed/improved - for example, the word "highlight" should go away as I no longer use that terminology in the addon. Cleaning up the index number location will go on the list too :)
For the third part, I'm not sure what I will do. Right now I'm thinking about replacing static colors with a dynamic function that returns more of a gradient so the transition from green to yellow to red is a little smoother. How would unpacking work with the user Config? Does Blizzard's color picker return a packed variable?
Thanks again for the feedback! Please feel free to keep it coming! :)
A new version of the addon with some of these changes and a couple of items off my "ToDo" list should hopefully get posted today when I finish testing it.

Nov 8, 2010The code will probably need some clean up - feel free to browse through it, but expect some changes as I polish it ;)Posted in: General AddOns
My knowledge of LUA is a little rusty but functional, roughly 2 or 3 years since I've really used it. There's a possibility I may be using some antiquated methods of doing things.
Nov 8, 2010Hey Everyone!Posted in: General AddOns
So i just got a new project approved and would love feedback (and bug reports) from anyone who has the time or inclination to try the addon out. This is the first addon i've worked on the CosmosUI project was put to rest and the first addon I've posted to Curse.
Bag Ends is a standalone, glance-able interface status display inspired by Sleek Free Bag Slots. I began coding the addon when SFBS stopped working with the 4.0.1 patch; the addon should be more efficient (roughly 11KiB memory usage) and adds several new display features.
I've got several more features and bits of polish I'm planning on adding over the next few weeks as I have time, but would love any additional suggestions!
The project can be found here: http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/bag_ends.aspx
Please feel free to post both bugs and feedback in this thread!
