I tried more than once. It isn't refusal. It's reality. You too will probably 
grow old before you take your last breath.

I already figured out how to do what I want once. I shouldn't have to throw 
that investment away and start from scratch with yet another limited utility 
investment. Neither others. Remember backward compatibility? It exists for 
good reason.

> web development includes JS as a matter of course, and has for over a decade.

It's an option you're trying to convert into necessity by stripping current 
function. It's bureaucratic mentality, why do with only two what can be done 
with three.

Better ideas, philosophies: KISS. Occam's razor. Treasure what you have...

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
