The language design issue HAS BEEN FIXED !!! WHOO HOO!!! I AM COOL !!! SO COOL !! ... well ... um ... really, I guess I should give credit where credit is due, eh ? :-D
Andrew Appel and Robin Milner and David MacQueen(sml) are SO DAMN COOL, Anders Hejlsberg(C#) is awesome... although his ideas of taking control out of the hands of the programmer is bizarre, Dennis Ritchie(C) and Brian Kernighan(C) are insanely brilliant, and of course, Ralph Griswold(SNOBOL, Icon) is the man !
And the language doesn't actually look much like C#, anymore ... so much as being a general meta-language ... there are 72 keywords !!! 72 !! Somewhat of a good thing and bad, I suppose ! Oh well ! Things are looking up !
