Rev. Richard, that's a most concisely written 'sermon' on xTalk.
Amen, Brother, I believe!

<Ironically, the most popular scripting language in the world is JavaScript>

I wouldn't be surprised if JavaScript was the most popular language of any
type. (not counting Markup Languages as programming languages.)

<All too C-like, it is a needlessly cumbersome and
tedious language design, fine for compilation but uniquely inefficient for
real-time interpretation >

Amen, again.
I've never understood why needless complexity always seems to trump elegant
simplicity in the world of computing.
