This isn't from a C++er (yet); sorry!
I completely agree with what you said regarding Dylan's "real" market in the programming world. I too am a Lisper being forced by the powers-that-be (usually the government) to move over to C++. I have found it a near impossible task to convince the people with the bucks that Lisp is an infinitely more productive and expressive environment than C for the AI software development i am involved in. I really hope that Dylan can win over hard-core C/C++ enthusiasts; if that happens, we Lispers will reap the benefits. The challenge, however, will be to overcome the prejudice of C people regarding dynamic languages in general and a Lisp-like language in particular. To do this, it must be proven to them that they will not lose efficiency (though i am not always sure that these claims of efficiency apply to the symbolic computing that we Lispers tend to do...). This is a very big order, maybe one that will eventually be obviated by faster and bigger computers. Granted, the IDE!
