"What is promised to the programmer" - that has a lovely ring to it ;-)

+1 for perfect is the enemy of good. In reminding me of what I already know, you have just saved me a couple of hours. Thanks

comment Re-inventing system design for Scala
Apologies if 'revolutionary' is a strong strong word. I'm not implying Scala re-invented the wheel - but it sure as hell did remould the rubber. In fact, Scala is a lovely mix of all the goodness of many programming languages. I'm sure it borrows heavily from Lisp also. To me, and I'm making no claim for others, the Scala language feels revolutionary in that I'm thinking about the code in a way that comes pretty darn naturally. A design/modeling language that does the same would surely be complimentary. That was my only point - no offense to Lisp and all the other great languages.
