Yeah man, amen. And while we're at it, let's get rid of the language
responsible for more security holes in the history of computing than
perhaps all others combined, due to it's lack of proper memory
management, poor standard library, and resultant tendency towards
buffer overflows. No one would want programs in a crappy language like
that, right? I'm not quite sure I remember the name, I think it might
be `C' or something?
