As a C-enthusiast, I came in assuming that I wouldn't like this. It actually looks very interesting though.

Modules and imports look to make things much smoother, function pointers and structs are friendlier, and more explicit data types are something many C projects already adhere to.

I'm curious to see how/if the compiler handles blocks and C11 threading/atomics, with the proper libraries (blocksruntime/musl).

Have to echo the sentiment (if at least to give the authors some encouragement if they are reading this). I saw the title and thought, "not another attempt to supercede C..." but it sounds rather interesting so far. I love high-level hacking as much as the next guy, but I can see how this can be easier for C-lovers to not hate since it explicitly doesn't try to be more high level.
