Still more code that dont make code more readable ( IMHO !-)

Really ? Having 41 and a half methods with no code is a fully written 
implementation ?-)

Ok, I wont go much more in it. The mains points are that
- I don't agree with you when you say that dynmaic typing makes a 
language only suitable for scripting. There are enough counter exemples 
(in Lisp and Objective C at least) to prove this is wrong.

- I dont agree with you when you say that static typing is safer. 
Counter exemples exists in C.

Now going back to something more productive !-)
