I have to admit, the first time I hit the wiki page for DDC I said to myself
"Self, this sounds crazy complicated".  Then I read part of the PDF (your
thesis I believe) about Region Types on the bus ride to work and thought.
 "Gee I think I scared myself off too quickly".

Uniqueness typing is quite interesting in Clean, but to control aliasing,
like really *control* aliasing, that's just far out man.

So I still have to wrap my head around "why this isn't going to get
completely out of control" and see why it's all safer than just writing C
code but I must say the attention I will be paying to DDC has just gone
quite a bit up.
