The problem is that everything you call out to may or may not be lazy,
and there is really no way to know it. For a programming language that
made great strides in safety in many other areas, this seems to me
like a huge oversight, perhaps even the number one mistake.

(I'm not an expert, but I've been with the language for a decade and
have completed a few Real Projects in it)
