Why you would not want the compiler to help identifying inherit traps is something I just don't understand.

That's a strong argument. Compile time errors have to beat runtime. But I guess I'm just very relaxed about things being null. It's a useful paradigm for 'there isn't one' etc. Reading from a StreamReader for instance gives you a null at the end of the stream, perfect condition on the loop. But then I guess the argument is that it should be a string?

How are they going to do away with the divide by zeros? That's what I want to know!
