> you end up with the ugly "set a $b".

I just tend to appreciate the beauty and power that kind of thing offers ;-) You can't have everything and logical simplicity is something that has always appealed to me, as a CS person. It's kind of funny too that people would complain about the above in Tcl, but don't complain about exactly the same thing in Lisp.

Ah well... RMS prefers Lisp so it must be brilliant?
