Well then I disagree with Walter on this as well. What's wrong
with having a "standard" toolset in the same way you have
standard libraries? It's unrealistic to think people (at large)
will be writing any sort of serious application outside of a
modern IDE. I'm not saying it's Walters job to write IDE
integration, only that the language design shouldn't cater to the
smaller use-case scenario.
Cleaner code is easier to read and, within an IDE with tooltips,
makes little difference when looking at the hierarchy. If you
want to be hard-core about it, no one is stopping you from
explicitly qualifying each definition.
