1) C Omega's name is bizarro -- technically it is "C-<lower-case-omega>", which looks more or less like "Cw" when you try to make something like it in latin letters. "Cw" is of course unpronounceable, so many people refer to it as "Cu". (C Omega tops C# for poorly-conveived name. Google didn't index on the "#" character when C# was originally released, so searching for "C#" in Google originally yielded nothing. "C-<lower-case-omega>" yields even less.) 2) I really have no knowledge of relative performance/expressiveness of the language approaches you are asking about. I must admit I am intigued by the idea of polymorphism based on XPath pattern -- its kind of like ML/Scala pattern matching on steriods I guess -- I'm hoping you will go forward with it a bit and we can see where it leads!
