I would suggest that you spend time learning basic principles about
language design and better understand the concept that not all languages
are meant to be used in the same way and for the same purpose before
you make any more postings in this thread.

Then you'll understand that the above statement is completely
meaningless.  You very specifically *do not* want to put every possible
feature into every language.
