And this might be a big problem. It reminds me of languages which do a lot of
automatic type conversion, including automatically converting strings to
integers and the like. The intention might be to make the programmers life
easier but I think in the long run it makes it harder.
In my opinion, it's a good thing if a language forces the programmer to see
different things as different things and not mix apples with pears.
