It makes me rather nervous to see a "systems programming language" of some years gestation that can say "exceptions remain an open issue" and yet doesn't immediately say 'what' their error recovery model is.

If I look at their tutorial it seems to be checking returned error flags and/or results for abnormal conditions. Maybe it's the PBP koolaid but I was convinced manually checking for every possible error condition / combination, and everywhere, was not best practice and not scalable.

My first impression is this is another interesting Google color thrown on the wall to

  • see if it sticks
  • see if the art gallery people say 'ooooo!'

So, is this just very early days, or just 'goo'?

    What would be the most significant thing to happen if a rope (or wire) tied the Earth and the Moon together?
