Interesting concept but so far the syntax seems unappealing on first glance.

Why not make the language at least very similar to an existing language? Sure, even if it isnt EXACTLY the same, it at least has a number of people that already write in it, editors that deal with it correctly, etc. Plus you can use general purpose code snippits from such a language, which will help greatly decrease the amount of libraries you will need to make directly before this becomes useful to people.

Well, in my experience, copying & pasting from one language to another one never quite worked - and quite sometimes made it to thedailywtf.com material.

On second thought, it may be a good idea. Thinking about it.
