I cannot resist noting that the name of the referenced language, "F#", continues a somewhat alarming trend of using single letters, possibly with suffixes, for languages names. Already there are: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, Q, R, S, T, V, W, X, Y, Z (I cheated a bit: W never existed, but *W did.) To language developers, the situation is surely dismaying: only I, N, O, P, U remain!
