comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
People could disagree about readability of "function" instead of "func" either. See my comment on question post. I agree that the problem is not the writability.

@rmx: What's the obsession to put everything on registry? What's the real advantage to put things on registry? Nothing against the registry either.

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
I'm not defending a programming language based on operators instead of keywords but sometimes a math symbol is better than a keyword, sometimes abbreviated word is better. I have nothing about longer keywords. "def" on Python is a example. I heard people complain about a lot of thing in Python but not about "def". People complain about the "complexity" of pointer but nobody claim for a "pointer of" or "address of" syntax. This is not a rant pro shorter syntax. Perhaps it be a rant about the silly insistence of readability of simples things. "Normal" people don't understand (((1+2)*3-4)/5+6)%7)

comment Long Keywords like `function` and `namespace`
I have doubt if this is a good question in that form. Can you edit in a constructive way. Anyway sometimes I feel that non-English speakers are smarter than native native speakers, not really of course. For a developer that doesn't understand English, namespace == aguucibosyvwtan (hoping this is not a word in any language). Code is not a normal text. I can't understand why developers push hard the notion that the text should be readable as a normal text at least for the programming language. Programmer symbols is another beast. Many operators currently has little mean for most people.
