I think it actually makes it as easy as it will get. Licences give you
extra options. Sure; options under certain conditions, but they are
options that would not otherwise be there.

Sorry, you lost me for a moment. Did I say that? SC took a bit of a
"kitchen-sink" approach to syntax; giving many options for many
things. That -I am sure- is really cool if you'd like to write
"poetry" in it, I also gather it can be confusing if you are a novice
and would like to find the common ground between 5 examples by
different authors. It does take a lot more from functional programming
which I agree often leads to beautiful code. Then again I find a
certain beauty in ChucK's tendency to be straightforward and sometimes
a bit blunt too.

You can get ugly or beautiful in any language. I swear I even saw
readable Perl once ;-)
