Conservatism
• C# developers hate breaking changes imposed by tools
• Even trivial breaking changes are agonized over
• In 11 years and 6 releases C# has never added a new
reserved keyword
• New keywords are contextual so as to not be breaking
• This imposes considerable restrictions on new syntaxes
• For example, consider iterator blocks:
double yield = 123.4;
yield return yield;
