This is something I have seen with perl - they like double / triple approaches of
solving the same problem, after which you can use and misuse language however you want,
but also code become unreadiable sometimes. C# / .NET is truly readable code,
but again - it has quite too long namespaces, and quite long function names, after which
even basic program is not simple to write.
I think programming language should be kept on several simple use cases (e.g. 20 sample applications)
kept in same place near to each other - just to remind what were solved by that particular language.
Personally I would like to make programming language to be easily extendable in any direction.
In C++ you can override operators, declare functions, but that is pretty much it -
I would prefer to have syntax like:
would trigger for C++ to become perl.
