I may have been glib, but my dislike of Java is NOT mindless. I could
explain in great detail what's wrong with Java as a language, even more
so now that I actually have to USE it. But I will refrain, because this
is a *Lua* list.
If I want a high level language with garbage collection, and I have a
choice, I use Lua. Well, duh, that's why I'm here. ;)
