OK, but, well, if I understand it right, D is an extension of C (a
"re-engineering of C++" as Wikipedia puts it). As such, it directly
supports the C ABI, and thus doesn't really count.
- Though it may indeed be _simple_, it is probably not as _powerful_ as
the PicoLisp native function. For example, can we call a C function
interactively (from the REPL or command line) in D?
- Don't we need declarations and include files (like we need them in C),
as D is also a compiled language? In PicoLisp you can refer to a C
function in your code even before that library is installed or built.
