Yeah, well, both the D/Go communities use the term "pragmatic" to
gloss over underwhelming design issues in D/Go, and makes a point
of how D/Go is deliberately not being a research language, yet
still claim that D/Go bring novel features... although neither D
or Go bring anything new to the table. I.e.just about all the
major concepts in D/Go are 30-50 years old...
It is mostly a case of inexperienced programmers not knowing PL
history becoming fanbois of new languages. Kind of like the OS
wars of the 1990s.
