Agreeed. Put more concretely, developers strongly prefer that ugly warts in
the language be *fixed*, even at the expense of backward compatibility.
Java, in particular, breaks things because a sufficient number of developers
have asked that backward compatibility be discarded in favor of fixes.
Also agreed that popularity is indeed *the* point. The developers are your
customers; ignoring your customers' requests, in general, is a BAD thing.
