Or maybe we are just taking inspiration from the lamdacamels and are going a viking to rich barbarian lands.
Personally, I try to contain a chuckle at the situation that will exist if we can roll out a working *mumble* for a language that most other "real" languages (Python, Java, etc) would consider "inferior". I've tried on a couple of occasions now to teach the pythonists to no avail, so maybe this will be what gets them moving.
As a fairly simple example, I've finished an implementation of Display.Swap, which I find superhandy in any number of interface situations.
It's nice to know that it now might finally have a permanent home.
