Thank you, very true! I fogot to mention this.

With a dynamic system, you can have backwards
compatibility as well, together with the
flexibility to try alternatives on-the-fly
rather easily. Changing some very internal
things to try something out is still not
easy, but with welded C code, this is
almost impossible.

Thanks for pointing this good argument out!
