C has adavantages in having a very small clean syntax.  There's a lot
to be said for that.  Like ColdC I try to be very C-like in my
language, except that its type-less, pointer-less, has no concept of a
process environment, and doesn't really have a stack outside of the
execution of an individual method (everything is a message).
