Well I did that. The language doesn't replace programmer discipline and 
skills. Or, to say thing another way : the programmer is more important 
than the language.

But it is clear that successful code in non typed languages ends up 
beeign typed anyway, just based on discipline, in most of the code.

Typeless is great when sketching some piece of code, but you'll way more 
problem at the end.
