... or Java (actually, I have my doubts about Java -- maybe you can make it work with anonymous classes)

No need for anonymous classes (yuk), you just need to use an alternate compiler, check out Pizza, it seems to not have been updated since 2002, but it's still a cool project.

That doesn't make it hard. That just makes it obscure.

Okay, i will go with you on that, with the one caveat that it for a large percentage of programmers out there it is not a simple concept to grasp, since the language they use (C/C++, Java, VB, etc) has no facility with which to do it. IMO, without a solid frame of reference it will likely not be very easy for them to grasp. But you are correct, that doesn't mean its hard (it just means those languages SUCK ;-).
