> Can't they make an APL "look like Python" but using the same concepts, etc?

Perl 6 has some APLish array-oriented features in something arguably closer to what is common syntactically. Of course, it's not an APL with alternative syntax, but an extremely multiparadigm language with that as one of many influences.

People make fun of Perl6 for adding Unicode operators, variables and such like having them would just be totally insane when APL has been doing that since the 60's and it works well lol.
