So my one real suggestion sank without a trace?
What can you say when the person suggesting it described it as, "A bad idea whose time has come."? :-)
For those who don't know, I was the ijit who suggested pluggable front ends so that I could continue to use what was essentially the language I love, but if someone wanted to write a parsing front end for something that looked like Japanese, or Python, go right ahead.
I still think that this is an inevitable step that some language will have to take with the growing internationalization of computers...
