As for the third point, Larry will have to decide on a string concatenation operation other than the current. Personally I can learn a new concatenation operation fairly easily. As long as he doesn't pick +, I won't really care what he does there...

This point seemed a bit confusing to me, being that so many languages already use the + operator for both addition and string concatenation, why would you be opposed to using + for this particular operation?
