I am a proud signatory of the petition to save IDL. Some may consider such petitions to be foolhardy, even absurd, but I think it is important to put forth some effort to save endangered technologies such as IDL. To see something this important, this transformative and this intuitive simply fade away into obscurity would be a terrible fate.
Wait! What the hell am I saying? I hate IDL! Hey, how do I unsign that damn petition anyhow? Damn! Now like numerous VB6 developers, I have signer’s remorse… Woe to me!
