Yeah, I agree, Kotlin has done a great job on that. Kotlin has 
added a lot of nice features to the old Java/JVM world. Data 
classes are very useful, and it's really easy to use Singletons. 
My point was, that the authors of Kotlin cannot do whatever they 
want due to Java/JVM, and still they managed to come up with a 
sound language.
