Google "Native Client enables Chrome to run high-performance apps compiled from your C and C++ code. One of the main goals of Native Client is to be architecture-independent, so that all machines can run NaCl content. Today we're taking another step toward that goal: our Native Client SDK now supports ARM devices, from version 25 and onwards."

Well python has an advantage in that it doesn't compile to machine code. So it's not really a fair comparison. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a language as powerful as the C or even Go that didn't get messy with complexity. Except maybe if you switched programming paradigms entirely. Lisp is next on my todo list.

Fair enough, lets compare it to D and Vala, those are as powerful as C, are native and with better syntax, or lets compare it to pascal, I mean, it is native, coherent syntax (verbose, but hey, is readable), so that's my point, Google with Go sacrificed readability in alas to make it more compact.

How would that function look in D and Vala (I know of those languages, but that's where my experience on them ends )?

Pascal was an awesome language . It's a real pity it died out as much as it did.
