But the same could be said about any language feature! Deprecating the  
delete statement, and increasing the verbosity of the code for the sake of  
customizability appears absurd to me. Why not move the implementation of  
the delete statement to the standard library (if it's not there already)  
and get it to do the same as the fancy new clear() thing?
