      Well, the next-but-one version of Swift will deprecate conditional operators (you know, to show "courage"); the version after that will remove loop constructions ("a brave, trend-setting move to show market leadership") and the version after that will have only no instructions, only allowing your code to contain comments.

      But they'll be beautifully formatted comments, with a choice of the finest fonts available and the ability to mix formats and colour schemes (from a pre-chosen, tasteful palette) within your code.
