Proof of Fermat's last theorem used infinite sets

Whilst you could not computationally prove the theorem using infinite sets, its worth mentioning that {C#, C++, Python} together with every functional language (except Scala) supports infinite sets, Java does not.. which is good.. Java (lacking tail call optimisation) would fall over randomly with a stack overflow (differently on every machine - develop anywhere, debug everywhere)
