Are you sure? I can't even imagine having to do
C or an OO language for what I do in Elisp.
How it would ever work is another issue.
But I can even less imagine it be as much fun
as Lisp. Lisp is just a more relaxed language
and for programming which is so intense and
focused it is an awesome quality.
