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?
