Ahh, I was responding to the difficulty-of-implementation issue,
not to the difficulty-of-understanding issue.  There is of course
some correlation between the two, but they are not the same issue.

I suspect even fewer people could provide a decent implementation
of Algol than of C, but I think it's easier to understand..
