I had a few things in mind, mostly to do with lists, some of which people
have already mentioned:
- list comprehensions.
- either list literals or autoboxing/unboxing conversions between arrays
and lists (I haven't really thought this one through yet; I suspect there
would be a lot of issues in deciding when to apply the boxing).
- array style access for lists, maps and strings.
- negative array indexes should count from the back of the array (e.g.
a[-1] == a[a.length - 1]).
- slice syntax a la python for arrays, lists and strings.
I'll happily write any of these up, if anyone thinks there'd be enough
