it was the whole over-simplification of rules, which let "everyone" try to
be a programmer.. fun times :-)

I can't help but wonder how many incredibly elusive bugs were created due to
PAL's dynamic scoping (globals, privates,
usevars etc) ...
It is often not obvious where a variable's value came from, could be
multiple places depending on flow.
Looking back, it just seems ridiculous, and is generating a bit of extra
work for me!
similar problem by introducing 'let' and 'const'.
