I've been looking at Nim every now and then, but I don't really 
like it. It's trying to cover too many bases. Don't like 
camelCase? Don't worry, snake_case and PascalCase works too. 
Don't like GC? Don't worry, you can use refcounting and manual 
memory management too.

Considering how APIs and libraries have to adapt to such multiple 
cases, I imagine the standard library is quite a mess.
