G'day all.

The trouble with calling a programming language "rigid" is that it
could either mean that you need to re-think some assumptions about how
you program compared to the languages you know, or it could mean that
it's a Turing tarpit.

Sometimes, even experts find it hard to tell the difference until
they've used the language for a while.
