this due to too few special forms (unbound methods, constructor functions called without operator new), it also imposed a long-term complexity tax on JS programmers and libraries.

The posting itself is primarily about political issues surrounding the development of ES4; not that interesting if you have heard a bit or two about how standardization bodies work. The comments, however, tackle one of the underlying problems: how to evolve a language. Hopefully, the politics won't stall ES4 as it looks extremely interesting and promising. To wet your appetite, be sure to check the Proposed ECMAScript 4th Edition - Language Overview published recently.
