Sorry to pick out one trivial point from your message, but I feel I should clarify that when I was talking about types I meant to include both static and dynamic types. Even in a statically typed language this kind of job usually includes a lot of dynamic type checking. Also as an ML and Haskell fan I am duty bound to point out that type inference means static types do not have to be explicit :-)
