Well, there is a crucial distinction between incompetence at the designer end of the language and incomptence at the user end of the language. You seem to conclude thet there can be incompetence only at one end, despite your deriding Common Lisp "flaws". I wonder how you reconcile this with yourself, but you probably do not bother. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
