comment Effective handling of variables in non-object oriented programming
It is not premature. I am also against over-optimizing, but keeping querying the DB for nothing is just silly. Moreover, you actually have to query your db in each function, leading to repetition

comment Effective handling of variables in non-object oriented programming
I do not know the Ash language. In any case, most languages allow you to group stuff together in one way or another, either using objects, records, structs, hashes and whatnot. A programming language that does not allow to talk of a bunch of data as a single logical entity should have very compelling features to persuade me to give it a try.

comment What is the justification for Python's power operator associating to the right?
Yes it is. My point is that of the two orders that you can choose, one yields something that you can write without stacking up exponents. So the interesting associativity is the other one.
