I think that merits a little more explanation lest even more of the waverers

[0] Where I'll be trapping them and putting them to work in the XS mines
in order to help me steal features - now matter how scathing I might be
about the implementations, or at least the manner in which expectations
have been managed compared to their actual maturity, I love much of the
language design effort (and it's entirely possible I merely don't understand
the bits I don't love well enough yet :)
