Please submit this to LPW this year, I think that this is just the type
of talk i would love to have presented, there is a large part of our
community that values learning about the aspects of other programming
languages we don't understand, relate to, or perhaps know. A workshop is
an -ideal- place for that.
Look forward to seeing the submission, this Friday is the closing date :)
