Oh, just look into the source code - AllThisLongOldSchoolAproachLetsAddEvenMoreHereToMakeItEvenCooler :-)

What ppl seem to depreciate, is, that the popularity of the language might not be defined by thier uber-cool features.

As for me,I don't like this JAVAish syntax. Well anyway - ppl never learn. Programming should be for ppl, not robots or PhDs needing to feel they finally can utilise their college uber-knowledge.

JavaScript, Python - much more readable. And Google has Guido on-board. If Dart is supposed to replace JS, I wish it follows Google Wave route :-)
