This is the old discussion again.  Do we need OOP features?  Or do we want to 
avoid OOP features?  I would like to avoid them.  Maybe I have not enough 
experience with situations where they are helpful but maybe there exist 
better alternatives.

What do you mean with "more dynamic"?  More dynamic typing?  Where is this 
important?  By the way, I'm thinking about a web development framework where 
static typing is essential for enforcing certain restrictions and consistency 
conditions.  Currently, I cannot see where dynamic typing would help for web 
programming but this does not mean that there aren't such situations.

Best wishes,
