I can't agree with you...

If it wasn't for 'things to learn', Pascal would still be stuck 
at Borland Turbo Pascal 6 level (that's the one I remember learning at school). 

And since the 'novelties' of classes, interfaces (which nb. I can't 
seem to bend my head round yet) do increase complexity, that make the 
language look cluttered, some features designed to simplify managing 
the clutter should be welcome...
(and no, CodeTools and Lazarus ain't always the answer for everybody)

[case in point: the try...[except]...[finally]...[except]...end; I wrote about some time before]
