Frankly, from a quick skim read, the only thing I find interesting about 
that language is the column selection operator, for multidimensional 
arrays, and I think that it might even be possible to integrate that 
into FreePascal. Such a feature would make FreePascal much easier to use 
in scientific computation, but it's not really necessary that often

But otherwise, I think you can do most of it in FPC already
