Hear, Hear! (A Postscript to My Take on Closures in Java)

From Revised Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme, Introduction, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1:
Programming languages should be designed not by piling
feature on top of feature, but by removing the weaknesses
and restrictions that make additional features appear necessary.

P.S.: This was written 'way back in 1998. Another fun quote:
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. -- Santayana
