In my (extremely biased) opinion, no it isn't.  :)  Take a look at the
paper I'm planning to present at the GCC summit this weekend for more
information on what I think is the right approach:

I'm not sure about that.  As described in the paper above, the changes I
would like to see made are fairly dramatic, and are thus are unlikely to
be accepted in the near future, if ever.  :)
