Let me just confess my religious view about this then ;)

I agree with most of what you say. The thing that really gives me
the creeps is "CORBA". I think the interfaces that CORBA gives are
slightly worse than "horrible".

What I would like is a low level systems language that has message
passing as a fundamental operation, implementing every possible
optimization at the wisdom of a real compiler.

Writing that language wouldn't be difficult, we could follow the
C extension approach or even directly use one of those.

An example language would be: Cilk at MIT

Or we could write our own C extension to be perfectly in control.
In fact, I would like is an OO language, but extending C++ turns out
to have too much overhead. Perhaps extending Objective-C would be
a good bet, or we could go straight ahead and write a completely
new language. Also we should look at Inferno.

If you're talking about a really exciting hack, that would be
it; not CORBA...
