Achh! There's a viper in our midst! :-) I enjoyed reading your
message. I have a few reactions, though not to the main point.
If we want people to develop in X++, we will have to write our own
introduction and manual for the language. Fearsome as that is,
starting from scratch is probably much easier than dealing with C
flavored C++. They'll also grok our tools a lot quicker that way.
WRT to your main point, we almost certainly have no time to write such
an introduction and language manual to X++. Anyone who's going to use
our frontend building kit (if we have such a thing) MUST do do in X++.
We can't rebuild FM and Compositors and C! (I realize you're not
One other thing. Remember that you're learning code and designs that
are in a state of flux. That increases the seeming complexity a little.
