    As Paul Graham wrote: "If you try to solve a hard problem, the question is not whether you will use a powerful enough language, but whether you will (a) use a powerful language, (b) write a de facto interpreter for one, or (c) yourself become a human compiler for one."

    The C++ guy in this panel sounds like he's happy being a human compiler to get what the Rust and Go guys mention is provided by their languages.
