i see that my previous comments were not accepted to the list (gmail's
default "rich formatting)
to add, backward compatibility is not good
e.g. numpy works under python 2.4 and 2.5 (not perfect, last i tried)
but not under 2.6 (last i tried and gave up.) and certainly not under
maybe it now does, but i gave up
a new version of the language breaking the modules is very frustrating.
about the syntax,
well, it is only expected that different languages have different
syntax , the "map" syntax is reminiscient of SQL and not very much
unnatural for a human language.
though it may get ambiguous if the clauses get bigger.
