Amen! Good support for factoring, inheritance, polymorphism, blocks 
seem to go a long way
(in my opinion).
Of course there is more than one way to abstract a program,
but that doesn't mean one needs a whole new programming language
(the "stitcher" can be regarded as just another compiler) to do it.
