Thanks for the links. It's neat to see such things being considered. My feeling is that such complicated language devices are out of place in JavaScript but it was fun to run the experiment.

While I'm thinking about it... I wonder about the choice to overload/reuse the keyword 'return' in the blocks proposal. Any thought on using something else to emphasize the distinction in semantics?

Edit: Nevermind. That would break the Tennent Correspondence Principle wouldn't it? Bad idea.
