What's interesting would depend on the language, no? I only want to
hear about interesting stuff. If tclkits are interesting, I'd like to
hear about them.
How about as a comparison point: how is the language interestingly
better than Python? As an example: "it's faster" might be a case of
"better" but it isn't really "interesting" (though maybe a short
discussion of how type declarations enable runtime optimizations might
be interesting -- I just don't think a laundry list of advantages is
For instance, if I talked about Logo I'd probably talk only about its
advantages as a teaching language. For Smalltalk there's the persistent
image, and how it breaks down the difference between code and objects.
