If your exposure is C/C++/Java/C# style weak typing then yes, it's quite awful.
There are much *much* better systems out there, but personally I find
that such a good type system means it's a good while before I have
compiled code I can experiment with. I think Strongtalk's idea of
adding inferred typing on optionally after the fact is a good one.
