Well, there are many languages that promote a specific
style of programming and many of the ideas developed
have been incorporated in later, more general languages
to good effect.

But for a language that wants to be a general purpose
language, yea, I guess I think it's bad.  A general
purpose language should strive to support as wide a
varity of styles as possible.

But this is getting rather off-topic.
