When will the marketplace reward people who learn? Near as I can tell,
the marketplace rewards those who duplicate all bugs of their predecessors
("compatibility"). Java's appropriation of C/C++ syntax (duplication of a bug,
in my opinion) has done more to get it accepted by programmers than any
amount of theoretical goodness could.
