You are really too kind spending time reading it nevertheless and - even better - enlightening it with your post. Thank you so much.

Yes, I know what sarcasm is and I can even detect it more than 75% of the time!!
Seriously, my "enlightening" comment had one of the following intents:
1. To show off how old I am and that I am here since the dawn or time, or the invention of C++ by Stroustroup, whichever came first (hint: NOT); or
2. To try to break up a language war when there are no two languages really competing.
My point, if in the last post it didn't come across is that there is no competition for C++. There is no competition for Java (ok, maybe clojure :-D). There is no competition for Python, Perl and definitively no competition for my fellow countrymen's Lua.
