Is that realy a reason for adding yet another extension to Pascal?
This is C thinking. I don't care about a word more or less to write
if only the *reading* of source code is easy (and the logic of the
language is clear). But each variant in writing makes it harder to
understand a source code (especially for newbies to whom the
learning curve gets steeper and steeper with each of such 'extensions').
