No, it's not another language. Just a few differences, and also I don't
agree that dynamic types are used often and removing it would equal a new
language. I never use it.
I think it would be much more user friendly and would attract more users.
M-script is a very nice language. I only program high level languages like
java and don't know C++. I don't think I am the only m-scripter like this.
