Sometimes I wonder about writing a DIP for declaring language version at
the top of a module to (almost) guarantee backward compatibility.

But realistically speaking, that would mean a whole ton more of work for
the already-scarce current compiler maintainers, so this is probably
unlikely to ever happen.

But one can dream...


Without outlines, life would be pointless.
