The apprentice went to Zen masters and said:

"I've tried to write my programs with that language. There's a lot of syntactic sugar, a lot of different idioms. Dialects do exist in natural languages, not in artificial languages. I think I'll come back to the linguistic purity of Blaise!".

The Zen master said "Look at seashells. Impurities generate perls".

And the apprentice gained enlightenment.
