If it were only a question of figuring out "what developers want"
and then implementing it, language design would be easy. :)
The messy truth is that different developers want different
things, and no group of developers ever agrees completely on what
they do or don't want. I mean, think about how much people argue
about tabs vs. spaces, or vim vs. emacs. Do you really think
these same people are going to come to a clear consensus about
stability vs. innovation?
