There are lots of langauges that don't need high-performance compilers and
rather be portable. I'm personally of the opinion that for that large subset
of langauges an UNCOL that has some of the same properties that makes C good
for such a job with fixes for things that make C a pain is only a matter of
engineering. So I'm puzzled why someone hasn't done it yet. Has ANDF and
other failed attempts left such a bad taste in everyone's mouth?
