Yeah, my main point was that things like autocompletion shouldn't really be a
huge issue for this proposal. Even if we could match the state of the art in
Python, it still would be inferior to the state of the art in Swift.
I've heard lots of good things about C# and the tooling around it, but being
primarily a Mac user I've yet to find time to spend on a project in it. I
definitely wouldn't be against trying it out some day :)
