the rash of "languages" that "compile down to JS" shows a trend; possibly based on a need, but this particular one seems like weak sauce.

IMO, if the aim is to make devs more productive and less error-prone w/ JS, then let's take this in a whole new direction completely.  why are we still 'writing JS" w/ a few decorators? why not _draw_ our code or visualize it in entirely new ways that bypass the error-prone, confusing, and mundane parts of JS?

if JS is so horrible, let's start thinking outside the box, eh?
