Hi Iztok,

thanks for the interesting case history and examples.  I'll try and
resist any new features - I'm currently aiming to finish the ISO
implementation in the compiler and the ISO libraries and then release
1.0.  There will be quite a few minor releases along this path.

Interestingly Eric Raymond is writing a paper on C++ considered

When writing programs in C++ I find I have to implement the solution
roughly 3x before I'm happy with the result - maybe due to my lack of
familiarity compared to other languages (C, M2 maybe).  But on the
other hand I don't really think this is the case as I find Python a
delight and I've written much more C++ than Python.

In the above blog the authors talk about the very best programming
languages facilitating "flow".  I can relate to this with Modula-2
and Python (nearly with C, but not when cross module boundaries :-)
