My thoughts are that your post seems almost entirely off-topic and is
borderline spam.

Are you considering proposing this "Fornux C++ Superset" for
standardization? If so, then your post should probably explain what it
does, what problems it solves, and so forth. Most importantly of all,
the fact that this "Fornux C++ Superset" is under patent *really*
needs to be addressed if it's going to have any hope of

And if you're not considering proposing it... then what is this post
doing on the "std-proposals" mailing list? This list is for looking at
proposed changes to the standard. If that's not what's going on, then
it doesn't need to be here.

Rust, or any other non-C++ language, is useful as a topic to this
forum only to the extent that specific practices in other languages
might be useful for adoption into C++. Beyond that, discussions of who
might want to adopt language X and so forth are all off-topic.
