Flare might perhaps have been useful for the purpose I originally
intended it in my young and foolish days - a brute-force intrinsically
un-Friendlyable AI development strategy.
If I were, for some unimaginable reason, to start working on Flare
again, not for AI (of course) but for its own sake as a programming
language, I'd drop all the features except those that improve safety,
modularity, and programmer usability.
