Hi Steve

I did not mean to imply that Haskell was for non-programmers, quite the opposite! I think it's power is a threat if it drains away professional-programmers, while Python has the potential to become the "Walmart" of programing languages, swallowing up family-sized ones. I could never have understood Lua's prototype-like object system without having understood Python's plain class based object system first. I know saving CPU cycles is always a concern and Lua has the edge today but if savings CPU cycles did not save Forth, then in the long run it might not save Lua.
