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.

It need not be new, it needs to be good. That's all. I don't
understand this obsession people have with new things, as if they
were automatically good only because they are new. Why not try
square wheels? Uh, it's new, you know.
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.
