That's a pretty confusing change though -- implicit variable
declarations remain (something people seem to dislike generally anyway),
but their behavior changes!
It might be safer in some ways that the current behavior (because local
variables are a lot less polluting), but I don't think it's really the
change most people seem to want.
Generous, adj. Originally this word meant noble by birth and was rightly
applied to a great multitude of persons. It now means noble by nature and is
taking a bit of a rest.
