I fully understand all that you've said thus far. My original comment
was saying that I disagreed with the statement that Scala looked like
it was hacked up by some Java guys, and said that instead I thought
that F# looked like it was "hacked up" by some .NET CLR guys, thus
filling the "hacked up" slot of functional languages on
imperative-based VMs. It was, in essence, a joke.
