In response to Sameer, I'm going to expand slightly on my prior message.

I should have said: a vision, a user community, a developer community, and a
codebase. We want to move forward; that means piggy-backing on the progress
of others as much as possible, without losing our important assets. Don't
churn the UI, so as not to lose our users; don't churn the programming
language without good reason, to keep developers and code; but do try to
hill-climb towards the largest crowd making fastest progress. And that, in
turn, means trying to find the shortest path between us and stuff like
Android, HTML5, etc., which have large communities actively progressing on
the cutting edge.
That's the justification behind my pyjamas proposal.
PS. while it's not really relevant, yes, I do have experience in the field;
I founded and taught for two years in a rural Guatemalan public school.
