How about morphic?

I've had similiar discussions on non OO vs. OO languages and
the end result was always the non OO side saying "we can do that
too, and it's really not much more difficult"(and maybe "plus we
check more stuff at compile time - we are more secure"). 
I suspect the same would happen here no matter what examples I 
offered. As with politics, differences are ultimately of values, 
not of reason.
