I think the point of this is being lost on me. We're talking about
changing things like philosophy (top-down design), and syntax. So are
we talking about just creating another new language? I mean that's what
it sounds like. Why not take Python or C# and add Pascal syntax or
philsophies to it instead of adding these to Pascal?
Maybe some people just really don't like Pascal that much.
