FWIW, I am a newbie, and currently learning a lot from the web.
I've had a different feeling.  Whenever I read something like "This is
historical, and should have been fixed, but isn't yet", it were these
sentences that almost turned me off the language, because I had a
feeling that there is some stagnation going on.

However, I realize that I have different priorities compared to
long-time users and people needing to maintain a lot of existing code.

Just my 0.01€
