Oh absolutely, as I note in the next paragraph I understand that there are (pretty simple) rules to it (and I think I understand these rules as well, though I could very well be wrong there) just as there are rules in Erlang and Javascript. The first paragraph is mostly about the feel of it when encountering it, which I believe would plague the language as much as it does e.g. Erlang.
