    (meta) What about the tags here? A “language” tag would have been nice.

      Not really necessary. “Programming” pieces often talk about languages, language features, demo in language X, etc. Appreciate you submitting it as I find the revision interesting.

      I’m glad they’re increasing complexity where they think it’s useful. That Wirth didn’t do enough was why his languages couldn’t get to their max potential. It’s why I liked Modula-3 for its nice balance of complexity & productivity. Extending M2 or subset of M3 w/ low-latency GC, optional borrow-checker, macros, and semantics supporting SPARK-like stuff later on would go long way. Great FFI support for C, too. Maybe C-like syntax for easier transition. No uppercase. I’m seeing pushing Modula-2 toward Julia & SPARK Ada while maintaining as much simplicity as possible.
